Our internship program is structured to provide music therapy students with opportunities to grow in multiple settings. Our mission is to create a well-rounded environment to prepare interns for the professional setting by exploring the implementation of music therapy in a variety of populations. We hope that interns are able to confidently identify their passion within the field and build a strong clinical foundation in each area.
Our goal is to guide the interns in developing important skills required to work as a music therapist including time management, effective planning, documentation, assessment and implementation of treatment plans, and self reflection.
We currently only accept students from Sam Houston State University and Texas Woman‘s University.
There are three internship training periods available for music therapy students: January-June, April-September, and July-December.
We are so lucky to partner with local organizations to provide clinical training at CAMP University, Nuevos Horizontes, and the Aurora House Foundation. In facility hours are completed after midterm.
During the application process, interns must demonstrate entry level skills including vocal/instrumental proficiency.
Interns are expected to average 40 hours per work week. Interns may attend community events with our staff to receive additional hours as needed.
Interns receive a total of $3,000 throughout the six month internship. Payments are issued on the 1st and 15th of each month.
Applications must be received via email or mail by the deadlines listed on the application form (no exceptions). Applicants will then be contacted to schedule an interview. Results will be announced by the end of that month.
