Course Description

The Master of Music Therapy provides a course of study for those wishing to practice as music therapists in settings such as hospitals, special schools, aged care facilities, community health programs and private practice. The course is open to music graduates and graduates from courses related to health and wellbeing.

The two-year program provides advanced knowledge of the theory, practice and research of music therapy. You learn traditional and ground-breaking theoretical approaches to practice with people across the life span, from preschool aged children through to older adults, with Music Therapy Skills classes covering voice and guitar skills, improvisation, songs and performances with dyads and groups, as well as receptive music therapy. A major component of the course consists of four clinical training placements supervised by qualified music therapists in settings such as hospitals, schools, residential care and the community. You also undertake a minor thesis in which you conceive, plan and execute a small research study.
Placements

You will also participate regularly in clinical placements, amounting to a minimum of 80 days across the two years.
