Music therapy:

Who and what is it?

 

Music Therapists are credentialed professionals who have completed an approved music therapy program. Upon completion of curriculum and internship, these college graduates are eligible to take a national examination administered by the Certification Board for Music Therapists (CBMT), an independent, non-profit certifying agency fully accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies. After successfully completing this exam, the music therapist is issued the credential necessary for professional practice, Music Therapist-Board Certified.

 

Music Therapists can be found working in a variety of settings, including schools, preschools, early intervention centers, outpatient clinics, rehab facilities, group homes, day treatment centers, mental health clinics, nursing homes, senior centers, wellness programs, medical and psychiatric hospitals, substance abuse programs, hospice and bereavement programs, correctional and forensic facilities, and private practice. Some music therapists are self-employed and may be hired on a contractual basis to provide assessment, consultation, or treatment services for children or adults.
