Music Therapy Song Repertoire Resource List

The KU music therapy song repertoire resource list acts as a reference for music therapy students as they work to develop a diverse repertoire of songs for use in their musical, pre-clinical, and clinical work. As such, it is a both a document of important songs that have historically been used in music therapy processes, and a living, breathing document that will be updated intermittently to maintain the dynamic of new musics.

Songs are categorized and divided into music genres. Genres provide some level of diversity. Current genres in the book are provided as a general list on page 2, and then each genre is presented alphabetically, with songs in each genre also presented alphabetically. This approach helps to make finding songs easier. Some songs will be cross-referenced. Each song will include either an original artist or the song’s author (or both), as well as the year the song was written.

This list can help students learn more songs, not only for singing and accompaniment purposes, but also for using recordings of songs when appropriate. Students are strongly encouraged to locate and listen to original recordings of songs to help their learning processes. Original notation in lead sheets is also helpful, especially for students that excel in reading. A good ear and solid music reading skills help for music therapists to be efficient in their learning of new songs. Also, looking up the history of a song helps a clinician make important decisions on how the music may connect with a client, increasing the potential for its effective use.
