Neurologic Music Therapy Training

This four-day, 30-hour training is open to allied professionals who are interested in gaining a deeper understanding of neurologic music therapy (NMT) and to music therapists interested in utilizing NMT methodology and techniques.

Neurologic music therapy is defined as the therapeutic application of music to cognitive, sensory, and motor function due to neurologic disease of the human nervous system. Neurologic music therapy is research-based. Its treatment techniques are based on the scientific knowledge in music perception and production and the effects thereof on nonmusical brain and behavior functions. Populations served by neurologic music therapists include, but are not limited to, people who have had a stroke, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson's and Huntington's disease, cerebral palsy, Alzheimer's disease, autism, and other neurological diseases affecting cognition, movement, and communication (e.g., MS, muscular dystrophy, etc.). The four-day, 30-hour workshop will provide therapists with advanced clinical training and scientific knowledge in the field of NMT.
