About

Learn how to use music to support the development and wellbeing of people with complex emotional, intellectual, physical, or social needs. The Music Therapy programme is offered at the Victoria University of Wellington.

Overview

Studying the Music Therapy programme offered at the Victoria University of Wellington, you'll get a comprehensive grounding in music therapy. Study the theory and put it into practice in a clinical or social community setting. Then take what you've learned from your practical experience and apply that to your research project.

When you study at the New Zealand School of Music (NZSM), you'll learn from dedicated staff with many years' experience as music therapists.

If you have a mature and compassionate attitude, curiosity, a knack for critical thinking, and a passion for practical, creative music-making, then this programme is for you.

Community placement

You'll learn from valuable community placements in settings such as special schools, inclusive mainstream schools, pediatric units of hospitals, and adolescent mental health services. You might also be hosted in elder care facilities, hospices, and community units for adults with neurological disorders and mental health challenges.
