Overview: The Master of Science in Music Therapy program is designed to provide professional board-certified music therapists (http://www.cbmt.org) with advanced research skills and clinical practice in music therapy, and to teach music therapists how to utilize the array of tools available in music technology for such purposes. Within music therapy clinical practice and research, music technology will: 1) facilitate the collection and analysis of data generated during clinical sessions; 2) apply compositional and improvisational techniques with patients, and; 3) exploit the multi-mediated environment of the MIDI workstation where visual, auditory, and tactile senses can work interchangeably to support therapeutic strategies.
