Supporting the International Music Therapy Institute in Amman

 

Music in Me has developed, in cooperation with the National Music Conservatory in Amman, an international Bachelor degree programme for Music Therapy.
Students from Jordan and elsewhere in the Middle East, especially from conflict zones, will receive academically and professionally qualified education and training for work as music therapists in a field largely unknown in the region. Instruction in the Arabic-language medium, with sensitive regard for local cultures, will assist the music therapists to communicate with their clients and meet their needs in appropriate ways. 

As an integral part of their studies and to acquire professional experience and attitudes, students will undertake internships in various health care, special education and social welfare and development institutions in Jordan.  These internships will play a major role in introducing the music therapy profession to the Jordanian governmental and non-governmental sectors, thereby opening up new job opportunities for the graduating students. Students and graduates from elsewhere in the region will be assisted by the conservatory to find similar employment opportunities in their own countries.

During their course, the students will be in regular contact with visiting guest lecturers and, via internet communication, with music therapy experts and students at counterpart institutions in Europe, including the Conservatories of Enschede and Maastricht. The ongoing dialogue will enhance the professional knowledge of all the participating students, and assist the guest lecturers in the development of curricula compatible with Arab cultures.
