What is music therapy?
“Music therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program.” (AMTA, 2010).
Music therapists work with people of all ages and diagnoses including, but not limited to, intellectual and developmental disabilities, Autism, mental health diagnoses, traumatic brain injuries, dementia, and much more.
Music therapists work in many settings including private practices, hospitals, schools, mental health facililities, rehabiliation facitilies, and more.
Music therapy is funded in part by Medicaid waivers, private insurance, and by generous donors like you that make music therapy accessible for all!
“Scarlett has made great progress since beginning music therapy in October! Her ability to focus and follow directions has immensely improved.”
– Carlee Efeney, MT-BC, Music Therapist of Grant Recipient
“With the scholarship, I have been able to look towards future goals and needs such as graduate school and my living expenses during that time. By this time next year, I hope to have started a graduate degree program with my (soon to be service) dog Monty by my side–and this was all made more possible with MTAF’s help.”
– Ali Esparza, Music Therapy Intern Scholar
