It was always my dream to be a music therapist in Miami.

The combination of palm trees, beautiful weather and a career I’m passionate about seemed like the absolute dream come true.

So to have that dream become a reality is something I am thankful for each day!

Another thing I love about being a music therapist in Miami is the vibrant bunch of music therapists who work in this city as well.

I’ve met these clinicians at conferences, at presentations and when I served as the Interim Professor of Music Therapy at University of Miami last school year.

These music therapists work in a wide variety of settings with a number of different clinical populations. We all have varied backgrounds and training. So there is a lot we can learn from one another.

In order to do so we’ve planned a number of Miami Music Therapist get togethers…

To swap songs and resourcesto sing at Open Mic Nightto jam…and to start a book club.

Back in August we got together over delicious garlic rolls and pizza at The Big Cheese (see picture  above!)

We had a great time catching up, meeting some new music therapists who have moved to the area and brainstorming ways we can reach even more people in Miami who are interested in music therapy.

I’m already looking forward to planning our next get together!
