Charlotte graduated from The University of Hull in July 2017 with a BA (Hons) Music degree. During her time as an undergraduate, she studied modules in the Psychology of Music Performance and the Psychology of Music and Emotion and became particularly interested in clinical psychological trials which established the unique and powerful influence that music has upon a person’s health.
She focused on this research in her undergraduate programme, exploring the reintegration of criminals into society and behavioural disorders in abused children. She thoroughly enjoyed analysing the complex reasoning behind the positive effects of music-based applications within rehabilitation and concluded that music has numerous benefits. She furthered these conclusions in her final year dissertation, in which she explored nursery rhymes and their crucial effect on early child development – in particular a child’s acquisition of language.
Charlotte hopes to pursue these interests and develop other insights into Music Psychology at postgraduate level.
