Taking Traditions to Clinical Practice

Veleer Erp Advisory and Consulting


 Music Therapy is an allied health profession where music is used within a therapeutic relationship by a qualified music therapist to improve physiological, social, cognitive, psychological and spiritual dimensions of individuals in a clinical context. In India, contemporary music therapy practice, education and research are just emerging and yet to develop fully. 
Indian music therapy practitioners use multiple methods and styles integrating traditional music healing practices and alternative treatment approaches, using music as a medium. There is not much of a clarity between the music in medicine approach and the music therapy approach emphasizing the therapeutic relationship. The various music therapy techniques apart from the receptive listening experiences are not still known as there is lack of training.  The music medicine methods have proved therapeutic benefits in the regulatory approach researches, but the most important aspect of music therapy being  both regulatory and relational  is  established firmly by CSMT

Chennai School of Music Therapy revisits Indian healing traditions and transfers them into modern Music Therapy practice, education and research based on evidences through regulatory and relational approaches in methodologies. The school introduces the first professional training programme in Chennai with an aim to offer high quality academic program with the state of art training solutions and the participants undergo the highest level of professional training in Music Therapy.
