Essays on the Power of Sound
Carolyn Bereznak Kenny - Author

This is a book on the therapeutic quality of music. Musicians, philosophers, music therapists, and others discuss their experiences.
"I like the book's immense variety of well articulated statements with regard to musical experience--the opportunity to enter into intelligent, sensitive personal viewpoints that are rarely or never expressed. I enjoy the mixture of poetic, imaginative thinking with a more analytical treatment of the subject...(Read More)
