- "This compelling story of the author's life in music therapy is told with honesty, compassion, and insight and serves equally as a personal history and the history of creative music therapy. The story begins in Clive's childhood as he describes the role of music in his life in the family bakery in which he was raised. We move through his adolescent years and his time in the British Royal Air Force during World War II and on to his life at Sunfield Children's Home where his work with Paul Nordoff began. The narrative details their early discoveries, the inception of their creative approach, their subsequent travels throughout Europe, and the establishment of their work in the Philadelphia area. The book continues with Clive's teamwork with his wife Carol in Australia, their groundbreaking work with the hearing-impaired, and their founding of the Nordoff-Robbins Center at New York University. The book concludes with an examination of the worldwide dissemination of this work and its intertwined role in the global development of music therapy."--Publisher's website.
