The Foundation for Music Therapy Studies Program assists you in developing grounded and relaxed guitar and vocal techniques used in the music therapy field. You’ll build your music skills through applied music training in melodic intervals, fingerpicking patterns, chord progressions, healthy vocal techniques, body language for performance and more.
As part of your education at Douglas a music therapist will supervise your progress so you can discuss techniques and get advice on future steps. You’ll further develop your music therapy techniques by playing and singing music publicly in health care and childcare settings.
The blend of music and psychology courses provide the prerequisites for third-year entry into Capilano University’s Bachelor of Music Therapy program, currently the only provider of a music therapy degree in B.C.
