CAREER & EDUCATION
Music therapists work in psychiatric hospitals, rehabilitative facilities, medical hospitals, outpatient clinics, day care treatment centres, agencies serving developmentally disabled persons, community mental health centres, drug and alcohol programs, senior centres, nursing homes, hospice programs, correctional facilities, halfway houses, schools, and private practice.
Essential to music therapy is the relationship between client and therapist. It is almost entirely based on improvisation - the music being the shared, spontaneous creation of client and therapist. Music therapy is a medium in which people may take steps towards developing their skills and abilities by virtue of relating, primarily in a non- verbal way, with others.
