The ISME Commission on Music in Special Education, Music Therapy and Music Medicine was established in 1974 in order to contribute to the progressive development of music therapy and music in special education.
The focus of the ISME Commission on Special Education, Music Therapy and Music Medicine is the advancement of the discipline through research and scholarship; learning and teaching; and engagement. The Commission seminar aims to:
- present research and clinical practices related to the three professions;
- exchange information about the training required for the three professions;
- promote international dialogue and discussion regarding the three professions; and
- disseminate the research presented at these meetings in Commission proceedings.
PRESENTATION AT COMMISSION SEMINAR at the Faculdade de Artes do Paraná–FAP in Curitiba, Paraná, Brazil, July 17–18, 2014:
The 2014 Special Music Education, Music Therapy, and Music in Medicine Seminar will host two tracks: (a) a clinical track and (b) a research track. The clinical track will be for presenters who wish to provide demonstrations or workshops on therapeutic and educational practices applicable to the three professions. The research track will be for presenters who wish to share original research in special music education, music therapy or music in medicine.
WORLD CONFERENCE, Porto Alegre, Brazil, July 20–25, 2014:
Presenters at the Special Education, Music Therapy and Music Medicine Seminar at the Faculdade de Artes do Paraná–FAP in Curitiba, Paraná, July 17–18, 2014, are invited to present their research papers as a poster at the World Conference in Porto Alegre. Because seminar presentations will be reviewed by the Special Education, Music Therapy and Music Medicine Commission for inclusion in the Seminar, presenters will not go through review again by the World Conference committee but will be based on the recommendations of the Commission Chair. Posters will be selected for the Poster Session as part of the Commission’s presentation activities at the 31st ISME World Conference in Porto Alegre. (Participants in the Poster Session will be responsible for all their own expenses).
Submissions should be made through the ISME website at http://www.isme.org/isme2014. The submission system will be available starting August 1, 2013, and the deadline for proposals is November 1, 2013. Commission proposals should be a separate submission and separate paper from submissions to the World Conference.
Details for full submission can be found at http://www.isme.org/isme2014/164-commission-seminars-calls.
All submissions should be accompanied by short biographical notes of the presenters and sent to the Chair, Lyn Schraer-Joiner, firstname.lastname@example.org.
