Summary Annotation The chapters of this book form a persuasive chorus of social practices that advocate the use of music to build a capacity for resilience in individuals and groups. As a whole they exemplify music projects that share common features aligned with an ecological view of reform in health, education and social work systems. Internationally renowned and early career academics have collaborated with practitioners to sing 'Songs of Resilience'; some of which are narratives that report on the effects of music practices for a general population, and some are based on a specific approach, genre or service. Others are quite literally 'songs' that demonstrate aspects of resilience in action. The book makes the connection between music and resilience explicit by posing the following questions Do music projects in education, health and social services build a measurable capacity for resilience amongst individuals? Can we replicate these projects' outcomes to develop a capacity for resilience in diverse cultural groups? Does shared use of the term 'resilience' help to secure funding for innovative musical activities that provide tangible health, education and social outcomes?
