“ Music is one of the few activities that utilises the entire brain “
The Professorship of Music Therapy focuses on deepening the core values of music therapy, using research, practice and clinical applications, as well as approaches from a wide range of medical, therapeutic and technical applications. This in turn will be translated into the Music Therapy bachelor, master and doctoral programmes.
The professorship is a further elaboration of the Music Therapy Knowledge Centre, which has been producing research results for a number of years. It seeks (inter)national cooperation for setting up research, with the emphasis on optimising music as an intervention in human performance in healthcare, welfare and (special) education.
