?  About our Ebooks


This book offers the practical, ready-to-use MuSense program. Originally designed for music therapists working with individuals with profound multiple disabilities, the MuSense program provides comprehensive guidance to music therapists on how to effectively work with individuals whose needs can be extremely difficult to meet.

Containing a robust, structured, evidence-based protocol of music therapy, and supported by case studies throughout, this book is also an essential resource in treatment planning for other diverse populations needing to develop enhanced body and sensory awareness.


'What I love about the MuSense approach to music therapy is its absolute grounding in the human body: the anatomical parts of the body, the brain's neuronal connections, the biological need human beings have for companionship ... All music therapists who are looking for a practical book that offers new ways to approach their craft should find this manual of interest.'
- Dr. M. Suzanne Zeedyk, Developmental Psychologist and founder of the organisation connected baby

'With a wealth of solid information and detailed explanation, Adler and Samsonova-Jellison have provided valuable inspiration and insight into reaching these clients who may at times seem unreachable. I am excited by the MuSense protocol and the opportunities it provides for this population who can so clearly benefit from music therapy!'
- Maria Ramey, music therapist in private practice in central Massachusetts and author of Group Music Activities for Adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
