ICMP is delighted to be hosting Song, Songcraft and Creative Processes for Songwriting, a training day for music therapists presented in partnership with Chiltern Music Therapy

Taking place on 7th July, the event will offer music therapists the opportunity to explore different aspects of the songwriting process and how this can help them in their practice. 

The day will be led by ICMP’s Head of Songwriting and Associate Professor of Songwriting, Sophie Daniels

Commenting, Sophie said: "I’m excited to be hosting this day with Chiltern Music Therapy and delivering what should be an inspiring series of sessions alongside my colleagues and songwriting practitioners Shane Beales and Tim Elsenburg."

Songwriting has long been an essential tool in music therapy but one that many in the profession may not have had the chance to fully explore. We hope this day will give attendees the opportunity to delve into the creative process to enhance how they work and the care they offer." 

What will be covered in the training?

The day will be made up of theoretical and practical applications to songwriting, finishing with the opportunity to bring, explore or simply discuss songwriting practice.
