Course Project: Psychological Foundations of Music II
Instructor: Dr. Michael Viega
The purpose of this study was to understand the role of digital music technologies in helping Nordoff-Robbins (NR) music therapists explore pivotal musical moments in therapy. C’airra and Claudia conducted their research in spring 2020, during the early phases of Covid-19, which necessitated an exploration of the imagery potentials and relational dynamics of online digital music instruments, techniques, and platforms from a music-centered perspective.
