Join us for a free community drum circle on the second Saturday of each month!

Our Program

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.
