Found an interesting site out in Califrnia, an educatioanl institution naturally, with several thought provoking titles availble for reading – originally got to the site by a link to the paper on the positive effects of music therapy .
http://digitalcommons.csumb.edu/caps_thes_all/ is a cresaative commons digital archive for the California State University, Monterey Bay.:
There is an account registration, but it is not needed to download all of the files. Some of the Capstone projects and theses that I found interesting were:

PDF And The Beat Goes on: The Story of the Drum Machine, Ismael Medina
PDF Self-Expression Through Dance in Early Elementary School, Emily Blythe
