Helping people as a musician
Our motto is: Music therapy is heartwork. Music therapy combines head and heart. We believe that a music therapist should be a competent musician, which is why you will be taking this course at the ArtEZ academy of music. At the same time, the course requires commitment from you as a student. You are someone who wants to investigate and explore how your knowledge and skills can contribute to the development and health of people, groups and organisations.
From the first year, you will start working in practice and learn what is demanded of a music therapist in the professional field. During your course, you will learn to apply music in a specialist manner for the sake of people’s development, for treatment, for support or for prevention. Because that always calls for a tailor-made approach, you will learn to judge how, why and when to use music. Which is where being a trained musician comes in handy.
Ultimately, you will choose a profile that is focused on therapy, teaching or in which you learn to set up your own projects As a result, you will have many options after completing the music therapy course. Many graduates choose a combination of different activities.

- Neurological music therapy
