"The approach Baker has taken to song-writing showcases its great potential within therapeutic work and helps us see its applicability to a range of fields, whilst also moving music therapy towards a more professional, measured interventionist perspective. The text will certainly become a definitive guide to the topic, and I would recommend it as an accessible, appealing read to music therapists, students, and those engaged in arts and health research." (Kate Gee, The Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy, Vol. 18 (1), March, 2018)

"The inclusion of a range of easy-to-reference tables is also a very helpful addition, and it enables the reader to put some shape and meaning to various orientations of songwriting models. ... the author has managed to draw together a huge amount of detail and thinking and to present the findings in a format that is both accessible and informative. A very welcome and important contribution to our developing understanding of song creation as a therapeutic intervention." (Bob Heath, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 61 (18), May, 2016)
