  • The Impact of English Language Dominance in Music Therapy Learning
           Resources on Indonesian Music Therapy Students’ Practice

    • Authors: Kezia Putri
      Abstract: English remains one of the top global languages that is used to bridge language differences in various regions in the world. According to Szmigiera (2021), in 2020 there were approximately 1.35 billion English speakers around the world. English is one of the foreign languages often used by Indonesians to connect with people and explore knowledge from other countries. A few roles that the English language plays in Indonesia are supporting economic and business development, building international relations, supporting the education system, and others (Crystal, 1997). This is also the case with music therapy education in Indonesia. Ever since the beginning of the music therapy program at Universitas Pelita Harapan in Indonesia, the program coordinators were all educated through – and have taught the students in the university with – English-dominated education materials and resources. Despite its benefits, this also had posed an issue with a few students in the past due to the difference in their cultural and language background. Some of the students had struggled to comprehend the learning materials; this, in turn, affected their understanding of the practice. However, despite the struggles, some students had also reported the benefits of using English education materials. This study aims to: 1) reveal the impact of English-language resources on the students’ music therapy understandings and practice, and 2) evaluate whether there is a concrete action that can be taken to improve the system. Both will be explored through the perspective of the students. In this narrative inquiry study, ten Indonesian students from Universitas Pelita Harapan, Indonesia, were interviewed on their experiences of using English-language learning materials and resources, the impact on their practice, and their opinion on actions for improvements. This study hopes to raise the awareness of the wide impact that English-dominance in music therapy learning resources might impose. Abstrak Bahasa Inggris adalah salah satu bahasa global yang digunakan untuk menjembatani perbedaan bahasa di berbagai belahan dunia. Menurut Szmigiera (2021), di tahun 2020 tercatat sekitar 1.35 miliar pengguna Bahasa Inggris di dunia. Bahasa Inggris merupakan salah satu bahasa asing yang sering digunakan oleh penduduk Indonesia untuk berinteraksi dan memperoleh wawasan dari luar negeri. Beberapa peran yang dimiliki bahasa Inggris di Indonesia adalah mendukung laju pekembangan ekonomi dan bisnis, membangun relasi internasional, mendukung sistem edukasi, dan lainnya (Crystal, 1997). Salah satu contohnya adalah edukasi terapi musik di Indonesia. Sedari awal dibentuknya program terapi musik di Universitas Pelita Harapan di Indonesia hingga sekarang, semua koordinator program menamatkan pendidikan - dan mengajar mahasiswa dengan - materi edukasi dan sumber daya yang didominasi bahasa Inggris. Perbedaan latar belakang budaya dan bahasa menimbulkan permasalahan bagi beberapa mahasiswa. Mereka merasa kesulitan untuk memahami materi pembelajaran dan akibatnya berdampak pada pemahaman mereka akan praktik terapi musik. Namun di samping kesulitan yang dialami, beberapa mahasiswa juga menyampaikan dampak baik dari penggunaan materi pembelajaran berbahasa Inggris. Tujuan dari penelitian ini adalah: 1) mengungkap dampak dari materi pembelajaran berbahasa Inggris terhadap pemahaman dan praktik mahasiswa terapi musik, dan 2) mengevaluasi apabila ada hal konkrit yang dapat dilakukan untuk memperbaiki sistem edukasi terapi musik di Indonesia. Keduanya akan dieksplorasi melalui perspektif mahasiswa. Studi ini adalah studi naratif, dimana sepuluh mahasiswa Universitas Pelita Harapan, Indonesia diwawancarai tentang pengalaman mereka dalam menggunakan materi pembelajaran berbahasa Inggris, dampaknya terhadap praktik mereka, dan opini mereka tentang hal yang dapat dilakukan untuk perbaikan. Melalui studi ini, peneliti berharap dapat meningkatkan kesadaran akan dampak luas dominasi bahasa Inggris dalam materi pembelajaran terapi musik.

  • Un-Labelling the Language

    • Authors: Nicki Power, Emma Millard, Activists; Artists at The Lawnmowers Independent Theater Company, Catherine Carr
      Abstract: People with learning disabilities are often excluded from society. This is changing; however, discrimination persists. Language is one way in which people can be excluded. In healthcare and research, the use of labels and jargon can be a barrier to inclusion. A group of artist-researchers from the UK, some with learning disabilities and some without, wanted to explore power and language in the lives of people with learning disabilities. The group included social change activists The Lawnmowers Independent Theatre Company - who identify as having learning disabilities, and arts therapist researchers working in the National Health Service (NHS). Using arts-based participatory action research methods, we held two co-produced workshops. The first, explore power, jargon and labels for people with learning disabilities and the second, with the arts therapists only, deepened our understanding of exclusion. We used a range of arts-based approaches including improvised performance and music, reflective art making and poetry writing. This article describes the process of working together and how the arts helped us to connect and explore challenging issues. We discuss the different ways labels impact who we are and the power they have to include or exclude people with learning disabilities from healthcare and research. Our participatory approach supported multifaceted knowledge to emerge, which both empowered participants and laid foundations for an ongoing social change partnership. We share our recommendations to make research and healthcare more accessible for people with learning disabilities.

  • Therapy – the Problematic Word in Music Therapy with Adolescents in
           the Child Welfare Services

    • Authors: Gisle Fuhr, Karette Stensæth
      Abstract: The word ‘therapy’ is known to be a challenging one in music therapy. This discourse-oriented study asks: how do a group of adolescents and their music therapists in the child welfare services relate to the word ‘therapy,’ and how can music therapy as a profession get round problems connected to the use of it' The data consists of case study material from collaborative interviews of six Norwegian adolescents in out-of-home care and their music therapists in the first author’s ongoing PhD study. Systematic text condensation is used to collect relevant meaning-bearing citations for further discussion and in-depth reflection. The findings show that the word ‘therapy’ creates profoundly negative associations among the informants. In fact, it creates so many difficulties that we actually question if ‘music therapy’ is a fitting label at all. However, because it seems unlikely and even unwise to develop new labels of the well-established ‘music therapy,’ we suggest starting the process of redefining it within the field of child welfare services by engaging in an active and systematic dialogue among all involved.

  • From Nowhere to Somewhere

    • Authors: Heather Strohschein, Margaret Smith, Linda Yates
      Abstract: In August 2020, two colleagues and I began an ongoing conversation on music, consent, power, language/jargon, accessibility, and inclusivity. We are not music therapists, but each of us, from our own professional and personal perspectives, is interested in the therapeutic nature of music. One colleague is a community musician in Glasgow, Scotland. She works for Good Vibrations and the Resonate Project which facilitate inclusive musical workshops and experiences. The other colleague is an amateur musician, participant advisor for one of her music groups, and a representative of people with additional support needs. I am an ethnomusicologist who specializes in Javanese and Balinese gamelan outside of Indonesia particularly as they pertain to community music making. We met through playing gamelan and through the Resonate workshops. Our conversations were a doorway for each of us into community music, musical academia, and the musical life of a woman with special needs. In our conversations, the question of accessibility as it is tied to language and power arose several times. In April 2021, we offered an edited video presentation of our conversations at the 2021 Mid- Atlantic Chapter of the Society of Ethnomusicology (MACSEM) virtual conference. In fall 2021, we hosted an event in collaboration with Good Vibrations at which we used our MACSEM video to facilitate an open conversation among academics, community musicians, music therapists, people with additional support needs, and members of the general public. One goal of this work is to provide unheard voices a place to speak. Our submission to Voices is a video reflection on our experiences beginning with our three-person, off-the-cuff conversations that originated over a year ago. Through this video, we will (literally) share our voices with your readership as we discuss our experiences of language, power, and whose voices are heard. We also reflect back on previous conversations by including our collaborative editing of the video itself. During our overall discussions, we came up with the title, “From nowhere to somewhere: Creating to Join a conversation.” This really helped focus our shared idea of what this is all about: three people from different life experiences and opportunities finding ways of speaking together and creating a format to have a voice in this arena.

  • How Societal Norms and Power Relations are Mediated Through Language:

    • Authors: Julia Fent
      Abstract: In this article, I will first briefly introduce my dissertation project, in which I undertook an analysis of German-language music therapy discourses from an anti-discriminatory stance. I addressed this topic in a participatory research group together with other music therapists and through the analysis of music therapy textbooks, drawing on theoretical approaches to discrimination from intersectionality and queer theory, which I will outline. I will then mainly focus on the procedure and the results of the text analysis, highlighting aspects such as valuations, exclusion, and othering, and how these are executed through language. In parallel, I will make suggestions based on my findings on how to support anti-discriminatory efforts in music therapy through the reflection of written as well as spoken language and appropriate changes to it. In diesem Artikel umreiße ich zunächst mein Dissertationsprojekt, in welchem ich eine Analyse deutschsprachiger musiktherapeutischer Diskurse aus einer diskriminierungs-kritischen Perspektive vornahm. Dies geschah im Rahmen einer partizipativen Forschungsgruppe zusammen mit anderen Musiktherapeut:innen und durch die Analyse von Musiktherapie-Lehrbüchern. Theoretische Bezüge lieferten hierbei der Ansatz der Intersektionalität und Queer Theory, deren diskriminierungskritisches Potenzial ich kurz skizzieren werde. In der Beschreibung meines Vorgehens bei der Textanalyse und der Vorstellung der Ergebnisse werde ich Aspekte wie Wertungen, Ausschlüsse und Othering und deren sprachliche Erscheinungsformen aufzeigen. Parallel dazu werde ich auf der Grundlage meiner Erkenntnisse Vorschläge machen, wie anti-diskriminatorische Bemühungen in der Musiktherapie durch die kritische Reflexion der geschriebenen sowie der gesprochenen Sprache und entsprechende Veränderungen derselben unterstützt werden können.

  • The Emotional Labour of Translations and Interpretations in Music Therapy
           Research and Practice

    • Authors: Nsamu Urgent Moonga
      Abstract: Language is a natural human system of conventionalised symbols with precise meanings that allows people to express and communicate their innermost thoughts and feelings, sensibilities and subjectivities, and carry out several social roles. Each human constellation develops a language suitable to the lifeworld. The diversity of languages is something to be celebrated, except when language is used as a tool for dominance. While the power of the English language is well recognised, the burden of using the English language by non-native English speakers and the expectation to use English in daily professional interactions are rarely examined in music therapy. Some people have written varied narratives of their encounters with power and language in this issue. This article, however, focuses on the labours of translations and interpretations in accommodating the dominant English language in music therapy research and practice. Using anecdotes and data from my postgraduate research, I demonstrate how the balance of power in the dominance of English in music therapy scholarship benefits the first-language speakers of the English language at the logistical and emotional expense of non-native English speakers.

  • Back to my Mother Tongue

    • Authors: Efrat Roginsky
      Abstract: "I wish you would teach in Arabic," a student tells me. She takes my breath away: that language barrier again. So familiar. About a year ago, following an ongoing struggle with academic English, I returned to Hebrew, reclaiming the freedom of writing and speech, even at the cost of sharing my thoughts with a wider audience, publishing my texts, and achieving more recognition. This critical essay describes the experience of a non- English-speaking music therapist and academic through the prism of language and power. The complex influences of verbal speech are described. The ideal of international language, its benefits and its consequences are presented as well. The author's story, her mother tongue, Hebrew, and a recent Israeli survey on the accessibility of language may serve to shine a light on possibly similar experiences of non-English-speaking music therapists. The experiences of a Palestinian, Arab-speaking music therapist also complement this narrative. In closing, the author reflects on the possible implications of dominant languages on the global music therapy community and challenges the value of this ideal. תקציר "לו רק לימדתם בערבית" אומרת בסוף ההרצאה הסטודנטית האחרונה שנשארה בכיתה. אני מרימה אליה ראש ומפסיקה לנשום, המומה מהכנות שלה. היא משיבה אותי אל מחסום השפה שגם אני חווה: אל אותו רגע לפני שנה שבו החלטתי לשוב לכתוב בשפת אמי לאחר מאבק מתמשך עם האנגלית האקדמית. לתבוע מחדש את חירות המחשבה והדיבור אפילו במחיר צמצום היכולת לפרסם, לחלוק מחשבות עם העולם המקצועי הרחב ולקבל הכרה מקצועית. המאמר הנוכחי, מאמר ביקורת, עוסק בבעיית השפה של מטפלות ומטפלים במוסיקה ואקדמאים בעלי שפת אם שאינה אנגלית. מתוארות במאמר השפעותיה המורכבות של שפה על האדם: יתרונותיה והמחירים שהיא גובה. חווייתם של מטפלים במוסיקה שאינם דוברי אנגלית במקור מודגמת באמצעות סיפורה האישי של המחברת ושפת אמה, העברית, ובעזרת סקר בו השתתפו מטפלים במוסיקה העובדים במדינת ישראל. משלימה את המסע חווייתה של מטפלת במוסיקה פלסטינית הדוברת ערבית כשפת אם. בעקבות כל אלה...

  • Becoming "Unknowing" and "Inexpert"

    • Authors: Stella Hadjineophytou
      Abstract: This article explores how the language of disability affects music therapists’ perceptions of the people they work with. A review of the literature examines how music therapy discourse and practice has been influenced by models of disability, specifically in the use of person-first and identity-first language. This is summarised by considering the power of language to affect the unconscious perceptions, choices, and actions of music therapists, leading to collusion between music therapists and inherently ableist social structures. The second half of this article presents the author’s introspective journey of consciously changing language, shifting perceptions, and subverting power imbalances in music therapy sessions with Kirsty, a young woman with autism attending sessions for her mental health. The case study incorporates Kirsty’s own written reflections to demonstrate the potential for collaboration and learning as part of this journey. The article concludes that music therapists might seek opportunities to become “unknowing” and “inexpert” in relation to the people they work with, in a bid to create holistic learning spaces that manifest and embody empowering language. The language of this article reflects the author’s preference for identity-first language. Person-first language is used in reference to Kirsty, at her request.

      Abstract: Nonspeaking autistic people frequently begin music therapy at the request of others. Typically, family or care systems are tasked with making decisions on their behalf and have decided this service will be of benefit. Consequently, music therapy is a given rather than a choice. For this paper I have used my own evolving understanding to explore the complexities and power dynamics related to nonspeaking people being able to say “no” to music therapy. Elements in this discussion include: (a) the ability, and safety, to say “no” in the context of a culture of compliance, (b) the complicated relationship between music therapists and the systems within which they work, and how this affects the therapy relationship, and (c) the role of music therapy practice standards. I advocate the following: (1) presume competence, (2) enter the therapy space with curiosity and openness, (3) be willing to “get to know,” (4) coping skills or communication attempts are not “behavior” in need of correction, and (5) learn how each nonspeaking person communicates “no.” Actively encouraging and respecting treatment refusal goes a long way toward building a respectful music therapy practice/relationship.

  • Whose "Power of Music"' Questioning and Problematizing aspects of
           Language and Power in Music Therapy Practice within Mainstream Primary
           Schools in the UK

    • Authors: Joanna Parsons
      Abstract: Music therapists have long worked in specialist and mainstream school settings and their practice, therefore, has been influenced by discourse used in both education and therapy. Parts of the discourse from both fields tends to pathologize children and focus on individual problems and treatment. In the same space, critical frameworks seek to challenge this by advocating for language and practice that is inclusive and context sensitive. By focusing on the complex nature of a mainstream setting, this article will highlight how music therapy practice might serve to strengthen or challenge deficit-based discourse around children within their school environments. I propose that, within school communities, there is much to be learned from paying closer attention to people's voices and expertise regarding their own practices and knowledge of both music and health. By illustrating day-to-day school life, I reflect on how particular approaches, choices of language and practice might impact how music is experienced and how this relates to health and wellbeing.

  • Vibrational Music Therapy with D/deaf clients

    • Authors: Russ C. Palmer, Stina Ojala
      Abstract: D/deaf clients perceive music through their bodies. The music therapist needs various methods to appreciate these sensations. It is necessary to examine the instruments from a vibrational perspective. Also, listening to the client is more important than speaking. This article focuses on how non-verbal methods are more appropriate when working with clients who have a hearing loss. Vibrosensoric approach to music combined with touch-based communication methods (social-haptic communication) enhances a positive client response. As a deafblind music therapist, musical vibrations play an important role for me as well as for the client during a therapy process. Background noise and spoken language can sometimes mask the perception of musical tones from different types of instruments. Speech with music within GIM sessions renders the client unable to follow either music or storyline. This distorts the sounds in hearing aid devices. Therefore, the instrument selection within the therapy session needs to be considered from a vibratory aspect. Musical tones from the instruments can be felt in different parts of the body. In this case, the focus is not on how an instrument sounds but more on the vibrational sensations it produces.

  • Against Cure and Toward Access in Musical Engagement

    • Authors: Stephanie Ban
      Abstract: In this paper, I reflect on my own experiences undergoing occupational therapy with musical elements in the United States in childhood for impairments related to physical coordination and visual processing. Although therapy involving music was by far the most enjoyable and least painful of the therapies and treatments I underwent as a multiply-disabled child, it was still anchored in the language of removing my impairments and/or aligning me better with nondisabled norms. I build on the work of Robert Gross (incorporating the social model of disability into music therapy) and Emily Elaine Williams (the participatory model of accommodation enabling music for pleasure, not for therapy). I also draw on works in the autistic and cross-disability online spheres on the overmedicalization of disabled people’s leisure activities to argue that framing music as a possible agent of cure or normalization harmfully obscures the ways in which music can provide access and mitigate impairments when directed and controlled by the listener, rather than by the therapist. My paper will also contrast music as therapy (imposed by others) vs. music as access tool (self-imposed) via a playlist and corresponding analysis. Music is central to my overall engagement with the world, affecting everything from processing and describing emotions, to communicating, to aiding in sensory processing. By introducing music as an access tool, or even as a form of assistive technology, I aim to challenge the dominant framing of normalization in therapy involving music and shift the focus to affirming disabled ways of engaging with music.

  • “What Sound Does a Cat Make in Cantonese'”

    • Authors: Tamar Hadar
      Abstract: In this piece, I wish to examine the notion of translation and to question the need of an interpreter in music therapy settings. Through reflecting on a therapeutic relationship between me, an Israeli music therapist working in the United States, and a Chinese American family (two parents, a grandmother, and their 2-year-old infant that is likely autistic), I wish to ponder the losses and gains of establishing a relationship that refrains from using a dominant verbal language (represented by an interpreter). Embracing the absence of any verbal and cultural monopoly, this work will present a plural lingual approach and show how it provides an opportunity for clients whose primary language differs from the primary language of the therapist to walk their first steps in an unfamiliar world. I will then explore two parallel processes that took place in the therapeutic encounter: the first, relating to the family’s capacity to contain their infant’s minimal verbal state, and the second, relating to my own endeavor to communicate with the family as a non-native English speaker and as an immigrant music therapist. I hope that my reflections will provide insight regarding lingual plurality in a multicultural context in music therapy.
