Music Therapy Technology Lab

MUS- L415 / 2 Cr.

The purpose of this course is to allow students to apply previously gained knowledge of music technology (hardware and software) to the field of music therapy using real case examples. Students should apply technology in a unique or creative way to solve a clinical problem. This can take the form of creating new music technology (such as new software or a new instrument), using technology to create new music with a client, using technology to adapt instruments for use by people who have physical or cognitive limitations which prevent them from using traditional instruments in traditional ways. Creativity, clinical reasoning, and an evidence-based approach to client care are at the core of this process.
