Creative Arts Therapists
To become a creative arts therapist, you will need a bachelor's
degree, so take a college preparatory curriculum while in high
school. You should become as proficient as possible with the
methods and tools related to the type of creative arts therapy you
wish to pursue. When therapists work with patients they must be
able to concentrate completely on the patient rather than on
learning how to use tools or techniques. For example, if you want
to become involved in music therapy, you need to be familiar with
musical instruments as well as music theory. A good starting point
for a music therapist is to study piano or guitar.
