Our Beginning



The Center for Music Therapy and Wellness, located at Drury University, is an on-campus music therapy clinic that was founded in 2002 as a private practice and student training facility.



Outstanding features of this clinic include both large and small activity rooms with adjoining observation rooms. The clinic has a wide variety of instruments for use in the therapy sessions.

The clinical team is comprised of two full-time music therapists and one contracted music therapist. Each session is led by a board-certified music therapist (MT-BC).
