Module overview

The aim of this module is to look beneath the surface - challenging assumptions made about music being therapeutic and exploring how to prove music is effective as therapy. Drawing on the knowledge gleaned in the second year module, the module aims to develop practical music therapy skills through participation in workshops and a placement. There is an opportunity to learn about less common clinical settings and current, innovative medical research projects at the University.

For students interested in possible careers in music therapy and community music, the lectures provide vital knowledge and insight. It has also been particularly helpful to students interested in pursuing careers in education. This module is equally valuable to students wanting to explore music from a different angle.
