This book looks at many examples of composers working in schools, community centres, hospitals and other situations which are not traditional contexts for music.

Examples are taken from the United Kingdom as well as from projects from other places in Europe which participated in the EU-funded Rainbow across Europe programme. This study examines the development over the past hundred years of what has come to be known as creative music-making, and traces its spread in other parts of Europe and beyond. It also shows how the composers role has developed from the nineteenth-century Romantic view of a heroic figure expressing his own inner emotional life in music, towards a more socially conscious inspirational catalyst whose role is to stimulate musical creativity in others.
