Music Therapists

Music Therapists plan and direct treatment programs using musical activities to help rehabilitate patients with physical or emotional disabilities, or mental illness.

Therapists analyze the patient, consider the patients' musical interests, and set treatment objectives.

As part of a treatment program, therapists may instruct an individual or large group how to play a musical instrument.

Music Therapists also may encourage patients to sing, write songs, or listen to music to promote positive changes in physical or emotional health.

Therapists regularly evaluate the patient's progress and effectiveness of the treatment plan.

They work closely with the entire health care team, physicians, nurses, and psychologists when planning and modifying the patient's treatment program.

Music Therapists typically work in State psychiatric hospitals, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, and correctional facilities.
