Associate Professor Music Therapy, Clinical Improvisation

As a music therapist, I have been practicing and researching the effect of music with developmentally delayed children/adults, people with senile dementia, stroke patients, children and adults with various psychiatric illnesses over 25 years. My main approach is to use clinical improvisation in these settings. The students who would like to seek the possibility of music and clinical improvisation within educational, medical and welfare settings, are openly very welcome. You will be guided through introduction of various theories and practices, as well as the actual case presentations and workshops. Effective research methods in order to meet individual needs for writing theses will be carefully investigated.
