Music Therapy is a professional health discipline that uses the clinical application of music to facilitate non-musical functional goals. Music therapy treatment techniques encourage positive change in cognitive, physical, social, and psychological skills of individuals. When applied by the trained and licensed therapist, these scientifically-based music therapy techniques can offer a non-threatening and novel approach to the therapeutic process. Music therapy can also expedite the therapeutic process in conjunction with other therapy modalities (i.e. relational therapy, etc.).
Music therapists are required to hold a bachelor’s degree in music therapy from one of the 70 approved university programs.Music therapists receive training in music, music theory, psychology, neuroscience, social sciences, human development, special education, and music therapy.
A six-month clinical training internship must be completed before taking the national board certification exam that is regulated by the Certification Board for Music Therapists. The credentials of MT-BC (Music Therapist-Board Certified) are earned after passing the exam. Board Certified Music Therapists are required to complete at least 100 continuing education credits or sit for a re-certification exam every five years. Music Therapists in the State of Nevada are required to be licensed music therapists in order to practice. This ensures the safety and the proficient level of treatment deserved of the populations music therapists serve.
