MUSC 646 - Music Therapy and Music Medicine in Long-Term Care

Credits: (3)
Prerequisites: GERO 601  and GERO 602  or permission of instructor.
This course will provide students with an overview of the practice of music therapy as it relates to long-term care settings and will facilitate the differentiation between music therapy practices, music medicine practices, and other allied music-based practices including but not limited to music thanatology, the “music for life program” and environmental music offerings. Students will have opportunities to evaluate the impact of music-based programming on the quality of life of those in a long-term care setting, the implications for providing these services to include a cost/benefit analysis, the ethical implications that may arise given the various modalities for offering music-based programming, and opportunities to explore their own personal responses/engagement with music as a way to sensitize students to music as a medium of therapeutic value and intent.
