The Music Therapy program of Codarts Rotterdam will run alongside the dance therapy education. With this master the internationally well-known professional training in dance therapy, with a strong basis in dance, gets an equivalent for music therapy with a strong basis in music. Both programmes offer the possibility for advanced professional training and specialisation.


The Music Therapy program of Codarts Rotterdam looks at music from psychological, biological, physical, expressive, cultural and social perspectives and explores the meaning of music from these various angles. 


  • The curriculum focus areas are professional identity, development of music therapy improvisation skills, music therapy theory and methods, clinical training, research subjects, and interdisciplinary work. 
  • In generic subjects such as research, psychotherapy and psychology modules, music therapy and dance therapy students work together through joint classes, presentations and group tasks. Music therapy course work is offered separately.

Programme Structure


  • The Practice-Based Research modules and the research project leading to the master thesis offer professional tools for the music therapy student at two levels: First it generally contributes to an increased understanding of music therapy. 
  • Second, it introduces enquiry, evaluation and research methods that help the MT practitioner to understand and develop practical approaches to treatment. Students learn how an enquiring approach adds value to the therapeutic profession.
