Career Exploration

High school students and musicians from various backgrounds are invited to see Music Therapy in practice and explore the clinical application of music interventions.  Session observations are a great way to see how a typical group experience is conducted and the impact of Music Therapy with participants.  This includes an opportunity to speak with a Music Therapist about pursuing Music Therapy as a career.


We welcome volunteers at Roman Music Therapy Services.  Volunteers provide much needed, additional support both at our events as well as with specific ongoing program support.  Due to the nature of our work with clients, a volunteer for an ongoing program must commit to three months of volunteer support.  The Operations Manager will work with you to match your interests to the needs of Roman Music Therapy Services ongoing programing.  Please note that a volunteer will not have the opportunity to lead a session but support the work of the Music Therapist and clients.
