Music Therapy

Music therapists work in hospitals, clinics, schools, rehabilitation facilities, or other settings, using music as a therapeutic tool to help clients deal with medial, behavioral, physical, or psychological ailments. This is a fairly new and quickly growing career field, and music therapists are in high demand. For this career, a master’s degree is eventually required. As an undergraduate, a B.A. or B.S. in Music with a minor in psychology is recommended. Many music therapists also begin their collegiate training with a B.M. in Music Education. You will eventually be required to pursue graduate training and AMTA licensure in Music Therapy.
