GAMUT – Music Therapy

The Relationships Between Music and Health

GAMUT’s researchers investigate the professional use of music therapy as a treatment used within the primary and specialist health care services.

GAMUT’s approach is interdisciplinary, and our research culture supports RCTs and meta-analyses particularly well. Projects also include use of mixed methods.

Via POLYFON knowledge cluster for music therapy, the centre builds partnerships with a range of health care and welfare services in the region within psychiatric ward, child welfare, correctional services, neurorehabilitation and education.

GAMUT recruits excellent researchers from around the world and works in the international front-line of the area.
