Two senior students will share their placement experiences in a free public presentation called Music Therapy Wintersong, on Thursday, December 1, at 7:30 p.m. in Katzman Lounge, Vanier Hall.
Cindy Detmar served practicum placements this fall at Windsor Regional Hospital’s Met Campus, working with paediatric patients; and at LaSalle’s St. Thomas of Villanova Catholic Secondary School, in the life skills class with students who have developmental disabilities. In January, she will begin a six-month music therapy internship working in schools in and around the Windsor area.
Rebecca Wright will discuss her four practicum placements – in private practice and at Rose Garden Villa, Baycrest Hospital and Windsor Regional Hospital. She has held an Outstanding Scholars award throughout her four years of university study.
“I will be talking about all of the populations that I have worked with, the people I have worked with, and all of the great lessons I have learned!” she said.
Read brief biographies of each of these students on the School of Music Web site.
