About this title


Capitalizing on the growing search for alternative realities, New Age music healers have emerged. These healers comprise a disparate group ranging from composers who believe their music can cure cancer to researchers who think flowers should be the arbiters of our musical taste. Because science has been reluctant to confront the ambiguities inherent in music, many of the assertions made by music healers have not been scientifically examined.

The lack of definition in music has proved to be a fertile field for deception and misrepresentation. In Music: The New Age Elixir, Lisa Summer confronts these groundless claims head-on, revealing the vacuous reasoning behind New Age music healing. Her critique is hard hitting but humorous, offering examples from many cultures and musical periods. Making use of the music healers' own erroneous thinking, this book debunks current fads while enlightening readers to the real power of music.

About the Author:

Lisa Summer (Paxton, MA), is assistant professor and the Director of Music Therapy at Anna Maria College. She is also the Coordinator of Guided Imagery and Music Programs at The Bonny Foundation.
