Messe Frankfurt and the German Music Therapy Society (DMtG) hold the ‘New Therapy Instruments’ competition for the first time on the occasion of Musikmesse 2019. Learn more about the new competition!
The competition honours not only hand-crafted therapy instruments but also new digital applications, such as music apps. The condition for inclusion is that the products are suitable for use and helpful in one or more of the many areas of music therapy. They can be developments that are easy to employ, that have a special simulative nature, trigger impressive experiences or offer easier access to music for people with impairments.
An expert jury of music therapists, musicians and instrument makers will select the most successful works from the entries. Decisive for the judging are criteria such as originality, design, ease of use and potential for therapeutic use.
