PRACTICAL PEDAGOGICAL EDUCATION IN MUSIC PERFORMANCE
As a field, the task of Music Pedagogy is to explore the connection between the creative and pedagogical aspects of music. Here, an important research area is how the learning of music actually occurs.
Music Therapy is an interdisciplinary field, touching on musicology, medicine, pedagogy and the social sciences. It focuses on the relationship between music, the individual, society, health and development.
