As part of the entry requirements, all courses ask that you have some experience of working with relevant client groups. This could be within a paid capacity or your experience might be drawn from the voluntary sector; working with charities and organisations supporting a variety of people within the community or a combination of both.
Information about training as a music therapist can be found in our training section.
