The symposium is aimed at a mixed audience of clinicians, researchers, students and the public. It may be of interest to senior students interested in professional music therapy or researching aspects of music therapy for NCEA.
Presentations will relate to music therapy, singing, and voice, speech and language development/rehabilitation, for both adults and children.

There will be a short performance by the CeleBRation Choir, a singing group for people living with neurological conditions, such as stroke or Parkinson’s disease.
