Dr Indra believes the power of music shouldn’t be limited as mere entertainment, but as an approach to be used in the medical field, despite a wide range of music genres, it connects humans to set something in motion.

DR INDRA V. SELVARAJAH

Music Therapist

As a passionate advocate for music, health and wellbeing, Dr Indra is the first PhD qualified music therapist in Malaysia. Everyone enjoys music. Whether attending a concert, listening to the radio, or singing in the shower, there’s something about music that can fill us with emotion, from joy to sadness. Dr Indra believes the power of music shouldn’t be limited as mere entertainment, but as an approach to be used in the medical field. From the soothing musical chime of Beethoven's piano to the more trendy K-pop wave, despite a wide range of music genres, it connects humans to set something in motion.

Aside from being a music therapist, Dr Indra has initiated and trained students for more than 20 community outreach activities working with a range of NGOs and societies, harnessing the benefits of music therapy to serve the most vulnerable members of the community, from children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Dyslexia to older adults with Parkinson’s Disease & Dementia.
