    The experience

    Overview

    Student Experience

    I wanted to study medicine because I wanted to work with people, and then I wanted to write and play music. I’ve always believed
    in the ways music can make change. Then I learned about music therapy as a profession and realised it combined everything I wanted.

    My research looks at music therapy as a space for young people to explore gender and power. I’m informed by the growing body of research that emphasises how important it is for young people to engage in critically analysing gender constructs, in order to promote healthy relationships and prevent violence.

    As a music therapist I am deeply invested in the ways music can engage and empower people.
