MTRB #7 – Past Episodes. The FIRST One!

Hi MTRB subscribers/listeners! It’s been a “long-ish” spring semester and we’ve been behind in getting some more MTRB podcasts out. So, to tide you over are a few podcasts we’ll release in the summer that we thought we had lost entirely, and can make available to you!

Here’s episode #1, when we first started the podcast in 2010 and gave you and idea of what we wanted to do with it. Enjoy an “almost throwback Thursday,” but on a Wednesday, MTRB podcast!

MTRB#6: Julian O’Kelly

JulianOKellyWe recorded this podcast on January 15, 2015 (yes, 1/15/15) with a wonderful guest, Dr. Julian O’Kelly. He has worked in neuro-rehabilitation and palliative care as a music therapy clinician, manager, educationalist and researcher for the last fifteen years and regularly presents at international symposia and conferences. In addition to his research work, Julian chairs the scientific committee for the forthcoming international conference at the Royal Hospital for Neurodisability: ‘Music Therapy Advances in Neurodisability II’, and is associate editor of a special research topic for the open access publication ‘Frontiers in Human Neuroscience’ titled ‘Dialogues in music therapy and music neuroscience: collaborative understanding driving clinical advances.’

MTRB#5: Results and Data Analysis

Blast from the past – here’s an episode that we DID manage to save from the “old days” about results and data analysis. It was a “Part 2″ portion of a three part series on writing up a manuscript.

As part of Music Therapy Drumming, Bill teamed up with Carolyn Koebel, Mike Marcionetti, and Kalani to create a series of instructional experiences for music therapists who wish to improve their clinical and musical skills involving live percussion playing. He has been published in Music Therapy Perspectives and discusses his research processes, past, present, and future. Buy “Tataku: The Use of Percussion in Music Therapy” from Sarsen Publishing.

MTRB#2: Research Process

The whole point (mission, if you will?) of the MTRB is to bring current and relevant research to clinicians. Well, one way to do that is to empower clinicians in music therapy to conduct research. This podcast starts that process: Where does research even begin? What steps can you take if you’re interested in contributing to pushing the profession forward using scientific inquiry? Take a lesson and let us know what you think!
