MTY 483 : MUSIC THERAPY PRACTICUM

The music therapy practicum provides opportunities for the music therapy student to apply theories, principles, concepts, and skills acquired through other aspects of the music therapy curriculum in actual clinical settings. Practicum helps the student develop greater knowledge and sensitivity to the needs of clients, develops greater self-awareness, strengthens necessary clinical and musical competencies, and cultivates a student’s unique style of working. The continued development of clinical competencies (delineated in the AMTA Professional Competencies document) prepares the student for the required six-month clinical internship. Four semesters of practicum are required in four different health care settings supervised by a Board Certified Music Therapist.
