To become a music therapist can you start learning instruments in college?0Inayah2012-11-02 07:26:26
I always wanted to do something with music, but everyone said it was a waste of time. I'm in college and studying psychology, but recently found out about music therapy. There's a school near by that offers it and it seems pretty reasonable since you only need a four year degree and certification plus they offer an internship. I'm not particularly skilled at an instrument though. I played guitar for a year and piano for about 3. I recently was going to get back into guitar lessons actually just becuase I missed it and would like to get better. My question is do you need to be very skilled at an insturment to become a therapist? I mean clearly I'm expecting I'd have to learn more and work on it, I just want to know if I have a shot at it or if it's something you need to have dieveloped over your lifetime.

Does the real psychology learning start in graduate school?0sharanna2012-10-27 15:45:02
Ok . I am a 2nd year undergraduate taking a double degree course , which is part of BA in psychology and business part . The truth is I'm a bit lost .. Sometimes you just want to drop the business degree and pursue psych teachers all the way . I love psychology , I find interesting . but the thing is that sometimes I just keep these thoughts of how I 'm losing money and time in college learning these things I know I could find in the library or even wikipedia and learn for myself , without having to go to the school. : ( But I know that 's not entirely true ... the problem with me is that I'm too worried about the future - if I'd end up , career , etc MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Eh, other psych majors , ever felt like that? MedlinePlus I mean , what are you learning now ? MedlinePlus Is this normal ? and that the true initial learning psychology in college ? MedlinePlus MedlinePlus because sometimes I feel that my university is going too fast ( we are trisemester system , by the way) , and do not forget the lessons , but I understand them .

I would LOVE to go to A&M for college, but I heard that the only way to participate in any sort of musical program there you have to be in the corps... Well being a girl, I really don't want to be in the corps. I would like to major in Psychology and minor in music, is that possible?
Music Psychology/Neuroscience of Music?0Orvill2012-10-25 00:38:10
I want to study music and psychology . in other words, I'm interested in the correlation of music and the brain , and how the brain is affected by music. I know a degree would be a Neuroscience music degree , or a bachelor of Music Psychology . School 'm most likely going to not offer anything like this for undergrad - all is a basic psychology degree . I am also interested in music therapy , this school also does not offer . I think I can still get to where I want to be ( in many , many years from now , of course ) , but I need to know how to start my career - should be a general Bachelor of Science , a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology , what ? If anyone knows anything about it would be greatly appreciated ! Another school also is not really an option , and I am aware that I may have to work at the level I want, taking different courses , rather than a title focused specifically related to the topic . I just want to make sure you take the required courses and anything that is not! any advice would be great , thanks .
