Monthly Music Research Design Clinics: Our last research design clinic occurred on April 29, 2016 and are off for the summer. These monthly research design clinics will resume Fall 2016 semester. Check back in for our next clinic date, likely to occur at the end of September!                                                                                               The music research design clinics offer an opportunity to meet with music researchers to learn about current research projects, solicit feedback on research ideas, and explore potential collaborations with fellow researchers in the field.


Pace, Pitch and Rhythm – the Essentials to Conducting Music Treatment Research: In April, 2016, we offered a workshop that brought treatment researchers together from musical and non-musical fields to enhance the methodology, design, and funding applications for incorporating music in treatment studies for language, social, cognitive, emotional, and motor outcomes.
