Abstract

The purpose of this paper was to explore how singing interventions may be used in music therapy contexts for persons with Broca’s aphasia. Characteristics and issues concerning stroke, aphasia, and Broca’s aphasia in particular were discussed. A review of the relevant music therapy literature revealed four overarching vocal intervention categories: (a) use of pre-composed songs, (b) vocal improvisation, (c) toning and chanting, and (d) singing original songs written by the client. Subcategories included in category ‘a’ were: singing familiar songs, Melodic Intonation Therapy (MIT), and Modified Melodic Intonation Therapy (MMIT). Research and treatment goal areas were identified and described within each of these categories. The final section of this paper will outline relevant implications for music therapy practice as well as make recommendations for research.
