Music Therapy Camps
Not your average camp, not your average kid.
Seattle Pacific University partners with EMP Museum to present Music Therapy Camps for children ages 6-14 on the autism spectrum, or with related developmental disabilities. Music Therapy Camps will return to EMP in 2017.
These camps are led by Seattle Pacific University board-certified music therapists and student interns, and provide ample opportunities for social engagement, enhanced awareness and appreciation of self and others, and creative expression through alternative communication styles of music-making.
Through individual and group experiences, music therapists offer experiences within a structured setting to explore music, including drumming, singing, and improvisational music-making.
About SPU's Music Therapy Program
The Music Therapy Program at Seattle Pacific University is the first undergraduate Music Therapy program in Washington State. Under the direction of Associate Professor of Music Carlene Brown, Ph.D., MT-BC, its rigorous, multidisciplinary curriculum trains musicians both to realize their full potential as music therapists and to pass the national examination to earn their Board Certified Music Therapist (MT-BC) designation. A distinct element of SPU's program is the encouragement of physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. The program also offers many opportunities for musicians to use their skills to serve others through the functional use of music. For more information, visit spu.edu/musictherapy.
