SEMPRE International Conference 'Setting the tempo'

The need for a progressive research programme on Music, Health and Wellbeing. Keynote speaker: Prof. Brynjulf Stige of the Grieg Academy.

The Sidney De Haan Research Centre for Arts and Health is currently engaged in research into the benefits of singing on wellbeing and health as part of a wider programme of research into the contribution of music activities in promoting the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities.

This SEMPRE conference will consider the need for a progressive research programme on Music Health and Wellbeing. There will be a focus on the use of music in community health settings, in public health promotion and community development and the therapeutic application of music in health and social care settings.

The conference will also include a panel-led debate on the quality and provision of training and delivery of participatory music-making in health and social care settings.

This two-day event will include a postgraduate research day on April 19th which will give researchers the opportunity to present and discuss their work with others.
