Music Therapist: A Recession Proof Career


The article “Recession Proof Careers: Music Therapy” has been published today.  It is my research on Music Therapy.  I gave a bird’s eye view of what it takes to be a music therapist.     Music therapy has great positive results.  It is good to know that Medicaid and Medicare are reimbursing for this service now.  I think private health insurances will go to that direction in the future.   The write up on Music therapy as a recession proof career is very timely.  Music students in  are disheartened to find out sometimes that they are not the best upon stepping into a music college.   Music school is so competitive.  Most of the students have numerous years of skills training in their instrument, voice or composition.  It is good to know that there is an alternative educational option if a musician has a special interest in service-oriented careers.   Music therapy combines a solid training in music theory,  improvisation, music therapy clinical training and psychology.  Music therapy coursework is still not readily available to all college departments offering music.  In fact, to be nationally certified for this position, you must attend an approved university.  The governing body in music therapy is the American Music Therapy Association.   If you need to find out why Music Therapy is excellent as a career in both economic boom and bust, please read the article “Recession Proof Careers:   Music Therapy“.
