Julkaisuun on koottu kattavasti tutkimusnäkökulmia musiikin terveyttä edistävistä ja terapeuttisista vaikutuksista ja merkityksistä. Kirjan kappaleissa tarkastellaan mm. epidemiologisia tutkimustuloksia, teoreettisia lähestymistapoja sekä käytännön esimerkkejä. Musiikkikokemukset yhdistetään kirjoituksissa monenlaisiin kliinisiin ja ei-kliinisiin tavoitteisiin, kuten stressin ja sen oireiden lieventämiseen, dementian hoitoon ja mielialan säätelyyn.
