I wholeheartedly echo Judy Anderson’s reply. The training for MTs (Music Therapists) is different from the training for TMs (therapeutic musicians). There are numerous training programs out there, all of which can be accessed on line. Research them to see which is best for you. And, if possible, find mentor, someone certified in the field, you can talk to. My training was with MHTP (Music for Healing and Transition); and I recently retired from 15 years working at patients’ bedsides at a hospice in-patient unit. A good training program will answer your current questions, and pave the way for deeply meaningful work. I continue to play then as a volunteer (until the pandemic hit) at a local hospital; and hope to get back to it.
