Drury University Center for Music Therapy and Wellness

About the Program

The 6,183 square-foot Drury University Center for Music Therapy and Wellness is an on-campus music therapy clinic. Outstanding features of this clinic include both large and small activity rooms with adjoining observation rooms. The clinical staff is comprised of two full-time board certified music therapists who provide client services in addition to student supervision. A branch of Drury Center located in Monett, Missouri, serves residents of Lawrence and Barry Counties. Each session is led by a board-certified music therapist (MT-BC). A music therapist has completed a six-month internship, earned at least a bachelor’s degree in music therapy and passed the national board certification exam in order to become an MT-BC.

Sessions at Drury University may also include student music therapists who are working on clinical hours towards completing their bachelor’s degree. Students are accompanied by an MT-BC in each session. The clinic serves a growing number and variety of clients both on and off campus including:

  • Children with developmental disabilities and learning disabilities
  • Geriatrics
  • Hospice clients
  • Persons with behavioral health needs
  • Substance abuse clients
