Divya’s Answer

Hey ! You can look for career as Music Therapist. Advance training in music therapy is now more important than ever, particularly to become more competitive in the market.

Music Therapists- They use musical performance, lessons, songwriting, and music listening as part of an integrative course of therapy to improve the individual client’s social, emotional, physical, and/or cognitive abilities.

All Music Therapists must pass a certification exam from the Certification Board for Music Therapists and continue to pass the exam every five years or take re-certification credits. Successfully passing the exam will give the Music Therapist the designation of Music Therapist-Board Certified (MT-BC).

Key Things to remember- You must have “a passion for serving people". “Your number one goal has to be to help people,” with a love for music coming in second. For anyone interested in this career, two essential qualities are “patience and persistence, because it’s hard to become a Music Therapist.”
Music Therapists must also have “tenacity, be hard-working, and not be the kind of person who takes things personally” because clients can get frustrated or angry and sometimes are unable to control things like swearing. So, compassion and understanding are also important. “You have to like people, be creative, and be a problem solver".

Hope this answers :) All the best !!!!

Hi,

I think Music Therapy is a great career to consider.

Also, there has been research on how music helps the brain grow between the 2 hemispheres and even experiments in recall with Alzheimer's patients.

Lastly, look into research being done with Neural Networks and music.

Google search on any of these topics will reveal a lot of information.

Hey Raven!

This is a great question! There are studies that have proved the healing properties of music. If you're interested in holistic medicine, I would strongly suggest looking into it as a possible career path!
