In this recuperative critique the author analyzes aspects of music therapy improvisation, including the therapeutic relationship, music, and the act of improvisation as well as its inherent body politics and its understandings of situated knowledge, from an intersectional feminist perspective. Based upon this analysis, the author invites readers to reconsider and reshape the accepted theories and practices of improvisation in music therapy.
