Music Therapy Advocacy in NC

By Jessie Lang

About Me

I am a senior in high school, and this blog is a part of my senior capstone project. For my senior project, I am observing music therapy, and advocating for state licensure for music therapists in NC. As a culmination of my product, I will be writing about my observation experiences and educating the public about advocacy for state licensure of music therapy in NC.

Furthermore, I am a folk musician and singer-songwriter. I plan to go to college to study either commercial music/songwriting or music therapy. You can find more information about my music and tour schedule at:
