This book is of principal interest to educators and recreation directors. As its title indicates, it deals with recreation through music. The roles of making music and listening to music are discussed. The use of music by recreation leaders, the techniques for community singing and choral singing together with procedures for a sing, repertory for a song leader, instrumental classes, instrumental ensembles, and an extensive list of references and song selections are included. For the physician this book might be of special interest in relation to the use of music in occupational therapy. The book itself does not deal with this subject specifically, but a physician with occupational therapy in mind would find little difficulty in translating the materials in this volume into terms of his own needs.
