CREMAH stands for Center for Research in Music and Health and aims to develop new knowledge, understanding, evidence and critical reflection through research in music therapy and on music as a health resource for people and society.

About us

Music gives access to aesthetic and existential experiences that are profound to the human being as a whole. Music also engages identity work and social participation. Due to constraints and challenges related to illness, disability, or challenges connected to economic, cultural and social -conditions/contexts, many people do not have access to music.

CREMAH argues that music is a valuable resource that offered to all human beings, alone and/or in groups: Music is a democratic right that belongs to all of us, either as recipients of music as an art form and cultural offer, and/or as active participants in music and musical activities, through music listening, singing and playing.

This is a mission, a social mandate, that the Norwegian Academy of Music (NMH) has, and a responsibility that CREMAH takes.
