President of Korean Music Therapy AssociationHello!

Thank you for visiting the homepage of KOMTEA.

For the past 10 years, KOMTEA (Korean Music Therapy Education Association) has been collaborating with scholars, clinicians and researchers in the field of music therapy to develop and deepen the knowledge of theory, practice, and research related to therapeutic use of music.

Publishing “Journal of Music and Human Behavior,” KOMTEA has contributed academic development of music therapy in Korea with scholarly research. With increase in the evidence-based research both in quality and quantity, music therapy was able to collaborate other related areas of academia.

Eventually such research contribution has strengthened the academia and professional fields of music therapy.
Furthermore, KOMTEA facilitated various activities formulating international research consortium among education institutes and associations. This was possible because of the passion and support of the KOMTEA members

From now on, KOMTEA will continue to develop the indigenous music therapy and will play an active role in firming the music therapy status both at the national and international levels.

I hope you will join us in this journey. Thank you again for your interest in music therapy.
