Music Therapists
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     When you think of health care professionals, you probably think of doctors and nurses. You might even think of dentists or chiropractors. Did you ever think to include music therapists? It may seem a little unusual, but music therapists are included in the category of health professionals.
 
2     The power of music has been acknowledged for a long time. The great philosophers Aristotle and Plato wrote about health and behavior being affected by music. After World War I and World War II, musicians visited hospitals to entertain the veterans. Doctors and nurses noticed positive effects on the patients. They started to request music programs for the veterans.
 
3     Colleges began to offer degree programs to train students. In 1944, Michigan State University offered the first program. Today, numerous colleges and universities offer accredited programs. After completing a college program, students can take a national exam to become a board certified music therapist (MT-BC).
 
4     After graduation and certification with a MT-BC, a music therapist might be employed in a variety of settings. They might work in a medical hospital, a nursing home, or in hospice. They might work in a rehabilitation facility, an outpatient clinic, or a day care treatment center. They might hold a job in a drug and alcohol program, a psychiatric hospital, or a senior center. They might even be seen at a school, a jail, or in private practice.
