This is one of the most appropriate words I have had the pleasure of writing on.
As a music therapy intern I am learning to translate client goals into a musical intervention and then translating those goals it back into a tool that the client can use out side the musical cues of music therapy.
Music therapist work closely with other disciplines (OT, PT, SPLA). In doing so, we coordinate and retranslate their interventions into a music therapy intervention, which supports the client in improving their quality of life.
As an intern I am honing my musical skills, translating music into a driving force, and improving the quality of life for the client’s that I am involved with. This is the most rewarding and full filing experience I have ever had.
