TAXONOMY OF THERAPEUTIC MUSIC

- EXTENDED DEADLINE-

This study will end on December 1st, 2021

Lars Rye Bertelsen, Brian Bemman, Lars Ole Bonde and Margareta Wärja are working on a validation and a revision of the 2014 “Taxonomy of therapeutic music”. GIM students and therapists are asked to listen to, and place random music examples in the taxonomy. No previous knowledge of the taxonomy is required. The survey will run until 1st December.

 

A note of caution, participation has to be completed in one sitting. It is not a difficult task, but it will take between 45 – 60 minutes due to the time needed to listen to the music. Please use the following link to take part: https://www.listen-stud.aau.dk
