Therapeutical meaning of music – Masters course content

Music therapy uses music interventions for therapeutical aims and ends. That is, music in all its facets is used to receive an inter- or intrapersonal improvement in a person that requires urgent psychological or physiological support. The musical means that are used can be instrumental, vocal, spiritual or emotional. The Masters programme in Music Therapy teaches you how to best apply which means to an end.

Courses that belong to your curriculum are songwriting, composing, cognitive techniques, music interpretation, dancing, performing arts, and instrumental music. This is why the Master of Music Therapy is both an art and a science.

As well as learning the content of your future work, the music, you will also be taught how to bring somebody to the music. Besides the pedagogic courses which will accompany you, there is a strong emphasis on the psychology of the humans and how music influences the life.
