WHAT IS A MUSIC THERAPIST
"Music therapists are highly trained allied health professionals (AHPs), providing treatment that can help to transform people's lives. Music therapists hold a Masters degree in music therapy and have a high level of musicianship and skill. Many, though not all, will have studied music at a university or a conservatoire. Like other arts therapists (such as art and drama therapists), qualified music therapists must be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council.
This national regulator holds a register of health and care professionals who meet their Standards of Proficiency and who are bound by their Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics." - British Association of Music Therapy
