Abstract/Summary Research into music as a therapeutic medium for newborn infants originated with the physiological benefits of recorded music for prematurely born infants. However the clinical music therapy programs embrace a broad range of theoretical and practical principles. This chapter provides two frameworks for conceptualizing the application of music with premature and medically fragile newborn infants in hospital. Within the frameworks, a series of models will illuminate the theories, evidentiary basis and clinical practice of creating a therapeutic intervention to support the emerging needs of the hospitalized infant and his1 family. The Infant Focused framework embraces the application of recorded music to benefit the physiological stability and neurological development of preterm infants, and the stability of the auditory environment of the Neonate Intensive Care Unit (NICU). The second framework, Family-centered approaches, considers the potential of live music making to sustain the infant's healthy development of self and his relationship with others.
