Many of you, mainly music therapists, have asked me about how I plan to play certain instruments.
For one, I have understood the Piano Plan (the name of an upcoming video series on this blog) to be that one of our faculty and my dear, dear friends will be teaching me to play one-handed. This lesson will be private, at least for the moment.
For another, I am enrolled in a group guitar class. The instructor is a veteran music therapist, and we're just waiting to see what happens. I'm looking into buying a pick assist to accommodate myself, but who knows? With music therapy, anything is possible.
I will take things in stride, and I will wait patiently for my brain to acquire the new skills and process the magnitude of the things I plan to learn. It's a stretch, sure, but stretches are wonderful things.
As far as after my undergraduate degree, I plan to pursue my Master's of Music Therapy from my current school, and then, God-willing, I'll be accepted into Florida State University's PhD program for music therapy. Come on! It's only one of the top music schools in the country!
Music therapy is something that I can envision myself doing for the rest of my life. It's been such a dream, not to mention, a rediscovered passion.
It's been nice to be able to rediscover a passion so close to the holiday season. What are your passions this holiday season?
Here's wishing you a Christmas filled with passionate friendships, passionate giving, and passionate caring!
