Music Therapy Students

The Music Therapy Program at Brooks Rehabilitation offers a 6 month (40 hours/week) intensive internship for students who have completed their undergraduate coursework in music therapy at an AMTA approved university. Students will have the opportunity to serve various populations throughout the Brooks System of Care within various settings.

Music therapy interns will learn and utilize Neurologic Music Therapy treatment techniques. Students will observe and lead individual and group sessions with patients, residents, and clients. Various opportunities for collaboration with other disciplines (such as physical, occupational, and speech therapists) will be offered throughout the course of the internship.
