Music Therapy – Careers

What Can I Do With A Music Therapy Degree?

As a professional music therapist, you will serve individuals with mental disorders, substance abuse issues, dementia, autism, developmental disabilities, physical disabilities, sensory disorders and acute/chronic pain. Focus on preventative medicine continues to build, and many music therapists work to enhance quality of life, maximize well-being and increase self-awareness.

Music therapists often work as part of an interdisciplinary treatment team, working with other disciplines to meet common goals for the patient or client. They may interface with physical therapists, occupational therapists, nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, speech therapists and other health care professionals.
