Advocacy

As music therapists, one of the most common questions we answer is, “What is music therapy?” While every professional and student has their own go-to answer to condense the entire profession into a sentence or two, we also come across opportunities to describe music therapy more in-depth through presentations. Next week, Emma and I will be presenting on music therapy to a local college class. With a sufficient amount of time to present, we will discuss what exactly music therapy is and how you become a music therapist, the different domains that can be developed and improved through work in music therapy, and of course, provide musical examples so that our audience can experience for themselves what part of a music therapy session may be like. It is important to look for frequent opportunities to advocate for music therapy, whether it be through giving presentations or networking – you never know who you might inspire and connect with!
