To become a music 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 music, musical
instruments, and musical theory. 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. A
good starting point for an aspiring music therapist is to study
piano or guitar.
