This guide is for anyone who wants to play live healing music to the ailing at the bedside with empowerment. Learn how, by manipulating the three major principles of music: rhythm, harmony and melody, music can effect the body in five basic ways, both physiological and psychological. This book illustrates what musical instruments are appropriate. You will learn how to assess the patients immediate needs and how to address them. For the more advanced, simple modal theory (to play contemplative chant) and nine examples from the three traditional music strains are included, plus much more.
