What is Music Therapy?
Music therapy is the use of music-based interventions to address individualized, therapeutic goals. Music therapy is a well-established allied health profession, backed years of research spanning across multiple client populations.
Music therapists must complete an approved degree program (at either a bachelor’s or master’s level), complete a six month clinical internship at an approved site, and pass a certification exam. Practicing music therapists must maintain their board certification through continuing education courses. In the state of Georgia, music therapists are required to obtain a license to treat clients.
The George Center provides music therapy services to individual clients, schools, assisted-living facilities, and non-profits in the Atlanta area.
