The Department also provides courses in Vocal and instrumental methodology, Education, psychology, Music and society, and Ergonomics for students in most of the KMH study programmes.
The General Studies area (AUO) of teacher education at KMH is shot through with music; pedagogics, psychology and group dynamics can also be applied in the form of practical music-making.
Eurhythmics is a working method for the learning and artistic expression of music through movement and of movement through music. Eurhythmics teaching at KMH is based on the Dalcroze method and today has a firmly established international reputation.
Music Therapy employs musical experience, musical creativity and interaction for therapeutic purposes. KMH’s music therapy training is the only programme of its kind in Sweden to be psychodynamically based. It is also the only programme of its kind in Sweden leading to a Master’s degree.
The department offers postgraduate music education studies in association with Stockholm University, and it is also engaged in several research projects within the field of Music Education.
The department is affiliated to several international networks for Music Education, Eurhythmics and Music Therapy. Regular exchanges take place with schools and music institutions in the Balkans and South Africa.
