The Centre for Brain Research is pleased to announce this Music Therapy Week event, hosted by Professor Suzanne Purdy, Alison Talmage RMTh and Shari Storie RMTh in conjunction with Music Therapy New Zealand.

There is growing national and international interest in professional practice and research in the area of singing for people with communication difficulties related to a neurological condition such as stroke, aphasia, Parkinson's disease, dementia and traumatic brain injury. 

The Centre for Brain Research warmly invites music therapy practitioners, choir leaders and potential choir leaders to a stimulating day of skill sharing, research updates, networking and interdisciplinary discussion. There will also be an interactive session with the CeleBRation Choir, a social-singing group for people with neurological conditions, put together by the Centre for Brain Research.

A light morning tea, lunch, and afternoon tea will be provided as part of your registration.
