Music Sciences and Music Interventions in the broadest sense have been increasingly moved into the spotlight of scientific research. Major questions on methodological and statistical use remain and music therapists as well as educators have to become familiar with the diverse field of scientific research. This in turn will propel our understanding of the impact of music therapies and interventions further.

After a very successful first edition of our Summer School in clinical research methods in music sciences, ArtEZ University of the Arts together with the VU Amsterdam, UvA, UMCG and HAN Hogeschool, are proud to announce the second edition of the CRM Summer school! This second meeting will further extrapolate the questions of methodological uses in different clinical and nonclinical populations, however attuned to the needs of the 21st century. We are living in a fast-changing field and have to make sure, that we do not only stay up to date with the new developments in methods and approaches but understand the fundamentals and basics of research. The second edition of the CRM Summer School therefore, will continue the dialogue from the previous edition, while focusing on innovation and development of research skills.
