- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?As a board-certified music therapist, I am required to earn 100 hours of continuing education every five years. I'm also a member of the American Music Therapy Association. As a performer and teacher, I regularly attend workshops, concerts and conferences to stay up to date on the latest news and trends in my field.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I started playing music when I was eight years old. I began on the violin, and guitar and piano soon followed. The older I got, the more I realized that I wanted music to play a vital role in the rest of life. I volunteered for Hospice in high school, as part of a team of teenagers who made scrapbooks for patients and families. One of our supervisors told me about music therapy, and I was instantly drawn to it. I felt that this was the perfect way for me to blend my love of music and love for people. I have no regrets!
- What types of customers have you worked with?Music therapy clients and music students alike range in age from five to sixty-five, of every colorful background and various abilities. I love them all.
