Abstract

Music has the potential to motivate, support and improve exercise performance while reducing the perceptions of fatigue. The music used in exercise groups is rarely examined in detail.

This article is an investigation into finding existing methods for analysing recorded music as used in exercise groups. No single method or tool was identified. Existing music analysis methods focus on music that is heard or performed in the therapy session, and are used to facilitate discussion and interpretation of the session with the client, or, to prepare for the next session. The article concludes with a discussion of the growing field of electronic analysis of music and what it offers to the therapist.
