As you already know, music therapy is a clinically and scientifically proven application of musical interventions with the aim of achieving individualised and clearly defined goals in therapeutic, psychological, and educational relationships with the help of a music therapist. It represents the use of music and/or its elements (sound, rhythm, melody, harmony), individually or in a group process, so as to provide and enhance communication and learning, stimulation of expression, and other important clinical goals, to achieve physical, emotional, mental, social, and cognitive needs.
There are a number of different evidence-based models and methods in music therapy, adapted to people with various difficulties. This summer school addresses those models and methods that are primarily focused on the rehabilitation of language difficulties
