It is my guess that not many people will search my archives far back enough to read this first blog post. But for those of you that are reading this, I want to start with a very introductory post that explains who I am and why I am blogging. Here is the short version.
I am currently a music therapy student at Florida State University. I finished my last undergraduate class just forty-eight hours ago. (!) For the next three weeks, I will be enjoying my summer days between my parents' home and my own apartment in Tallahassee. Then, beginning May 17th, my summer vacation will abruptly end and I will become an intern at the Behavioral Health Center of Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.
I am beginning this blog now as a resource for fellow music therapy students. As part of my senior project required as an undergraduate, I want to create a place where students (and professionals) can go for intervention ideas, songs, music therapy news, advice, and anything else music therapy-related. I intend for this blog to have something for everyone. Where I can transfer ideas to cover multiple populations, I will. It is my goal to get a lot of information in one place, something I always searched for in the days of my undergrad.
That said, help me by sharing ideas, opinions, and suggestions for future posts. I hope that this will become a valuable tool for my fellow therapy students, and something that will extend beyond a senior project.
