International Symposium: Music Therapy for Adults with Learning Disabilities



The Music Therapy programme team at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh is excited to announce that it is hosting another international symposium. This event was originally scheduled for March 2018 but had to be postponed due to the adverse weather conditions.

We are delighted that the symposium will now take place on 4th September 2018 and we hope you can join us! Leading music therapy researchers and experienced practitioners from around the world will come together to share perspectives on music therapy work with adults with learning disabilities. This symposium will highlight developments in the profession and foster thinking and practice in this field. Please note, as this is a re-scheduled event, several of our speakers will be attending by Skype or presenting via pre-recorded video.

The symposium will run from 10am - 4:30pm, followed by a wine reception.

Thanks to generous sponsorship from The Centre for Applied Social Sciences at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh and East Lothian Youth Music Forum, registration is free for this fantastic day event. Join us!
