Still Making Music: How Students with Traumatic Brain Injury Can Continue with Musical Activities
Bennington, Patrick M.
Music Educators Journal, v103 n4 p20-24 Jun 2017
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is common in the United States. All age groups are at risk for TBI, but there is a larger occurrence among school-age children and young adults. No matter the severity of a student's injury, he or she can benefit from music education, whether listening to music, singing, or performing on an instrument. Students can engage in music listening assignments that include selected pieces of music or music that an ensemble is currently rehearsing. For students with mild TBI who are able, performing music has also been shown to be beneficial.
