Abstract: The subject of supervision for the music therapist is becoming increasingly important in light of growing concern and interest in the music therapist's traiing and development after formal education is completed. The type of supervision most useful for music therapists is therefore important to address. In this article, the rationale for a music therapy supervision group which combines verbal and musical elements is presented. Who might benefit from such a group, what tools are available, the supervisor's role, and a possible model are subjects for discussion. The integration of verbal and musical elements is explored and techniques of the music therapy supervisory process are illustrated.
