BECOMING-MUSIC: A DESCRIPTION OF AN IMPROVISATIONAL MUSIC THERAPY OUTREACH APPROACH

Jeff Smith

Abstract


The following paper is a description of a music therapy outreach program that drew upon the philosophical work of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, narrative therapy, and response-based practice to provide a creative anti-oppressive service to under-housed youth living in Coast Salish and Straight Salish territory (more commonly advertised as Victoria, British Columbia). The author provides examples from his work with a composite character called Pete.
