|Subject Overview:||This subject will develop musical and therapeutic skills in the use of songs in music therapy. Classes will involve vocal and guitar instruction that addresses basic knowledge and develops a repertoire of known songs. Teaching will focus on voice leading in song-based work, achieving balance between voice and guitar, accompaniment styles and techniques, and the creation of original songs.
