On January 18, I'll talk with Brian Abrams and Karen Goodman about the music therapy program at Montclair. The Music Therapy training program at Montclair State University is one of the oldest (1969) and foremost training programs in this country. It features closely supervised clinical work each semester, which takes place at both highly reputable local facilities as well as schools, nursing homes and hospitals in New York City. In addition, the program offers a Music Therapy Training Group, Introduction to Guided Imagery and Music, an on-campus music therapy clinic, and specialized courses in piano accompaniment and clinical improvisation. Guest clinicians from the U.S. and other countries frequently make presentations and give workshops. In the past, the following guest clinicians offered workshops and lectures to our students: Clive Robbins, Clare O'Callaghan (Australia), and Elaine Streeter (Great Britain).

The MSU Music Therapy program is the only program in the state of New Jersey for educating music therapists and one of the most competitively priced undergraduate and graduate program in the tri-state metropolitan New York City area. All students who have completed this program have found positions.
