Where Do Music Therapists Work?
Music therapists work in a variety of settings, such as hospitals, special schools, day centres, the community, the prison service and in private practice.
This means that they may be employed by the National Health Service, local education authority or the Department of Social Services. Some may be funded by charitable organisations or trusts or be self-employed.
In all work settings, music therapists function as part of a multi-disciplinary team, their observations adding greatly to the understanding of each client’s needs, abilities or problems.
