Music in a Hospital Setting: A Multifaceted Experience
Preti, Costanza; Welch, Graham F.
British Journal of Music Education, v21 n3 p329-345 Nov 2004
The article offers an explanation of the effects of music on children within a hospital setting and points up the multifaceted nature of this experience. The nature of the client group allows the musical experience to work on many different levels, such as modifying the child's perception of pain and reducing stress, whilst at the same time having an integral educational element that supports musical development. The evidence base is drawn from an extensive review of the music/medicine literature, interfaced with the first author's experience over many years as a participant musician in a paediatric oncology ward.
