Dr. Wang, Wei-Chun  Professor, Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, Taipei, Taiwan Since 2016, I have been the commissioner of the ISME Commission on Special Music Education and Music Therapy. I received the D.M.A. in music education and choral conducting from University of Oregon, U. S. A., Master of music in conducting and a Bachelor of Music from National Taiwan Normal University. I teach courses in Music Perception, Music Therapy, Musical Theater, Conducting, and Choral Ensemble, Trans-disciplinary Study in Music, Research in Music Behavior. Numerous honors from the Ministry of Education in Taiwan have been awarded to me for excellence and creativity in teaching. Aside from being a music educator, I am also an outstanding choral conductor. I have successfully conducted Mozart Requiem and Bach Cantata BWV105 & 147 with Festival Orchestra and Choir in the 2004 Oregon Bach Festival. I am also the director of Bella Voce Chamber Choir, Yun Zhong Choir, Vivid Choir of NTUST and University Singers of NTUE, and the advisor of Vox Nativa Children’s Choir, which was invited to perform in APSMER 2011. In addition, successful choral concerts and musical adaptations are held frequently. My recent projects on music therapy include: (1) Using self-developed Apps and picture books for children with Autism to promote their oral communication, perceptual and psychomotor function, music ability. (2) Applications of singing and other active music activities on patients with Parkinson's disease to improve their quality of life.
