In this thesis I examine the philosophical and psychological literature on the human experimence of the ingredients of music, and pay particular attention to that body of literature which describes the interpersonal temporal and prosodic features of basic human communication, that is, the literature on non-verbal mother-infant interaction. I propose that improvisation in music therapy provides a pivotal synthesis for demonstrating the duality of music and basic emotional processes, and support this with experimental work.
