Original versionI: Music in Paediatric Hospitals – Nordic Perspectives, s. vii-xvi
Trygve Aasgaard is a central figure in the development of paediatric music therapy in the Nordic countries. He was the first music therapist to work systematically in a paediatric ward in Norway, and he was the first Nordic music therapist to earn a PhD degree in the field, studying his own work with children composing songs during their hospital stay and their ways of sharing them with family and friends. Aasgaard’s contribution to the field has been invaluable with regards to clinical practice, research and teaching. Therefore, we are delighted to introduce this anthology with an interview with Aasgaard where he shares some of his experience, knowledge and reflections. Thank you, Karette Stensæth, for this idea and for conducting the interview.
