Commercial Music and Music Therapy
Today, I'm talking to Melissa Heffner, a music therapist currently based in Texas. I met Melissa through my local music community while she was working on her master’s. I had a high school student who was interested in music therapy as a profession, and Melissa was kind enough to consult with us to help us understand more about the profession so she and I both knew how to prepare and what to expect. As you’ll hear, commercial music plays a big role in this work, and I wanted to share this interview with you because I think we can help future music therapists prepare for their careers in our commercial voice studios. We can also collaborate or consult with music therapists for our students. If you’d like to learn more about music therapy or to find a music therapist near you, go to musictherapy.org.
