International Society for Music Education (ISME)

The Commission on Special Music Education and Music Therapy as a part of the ISME association was established in 1974 order to contribute to the progressive development of special music education, music therapy, music in special education and other related fields of practice which examine the relationship between music, health, public health and well-being. The Commission seeks to promote inter-disciplinary communication and exchange between practitioners and scholars who are involved in these fields.
