We aim to show how music can enhance human experience by :-

- publishing articles and papers
- maintaining a database of relevant research on the benefits of music and its processes
- running workshops on music and communication
- organising a national conference on music therapy
If you wish to contribute an article or paper, organise a workshop or conference please contact the MRI.
