We believe that music bypasses the intellect, unleashes emotions, speaks to the soul, inspires the heart, and creates a connection through the ages.
The SMWC Music Therapy Club’s purpose is to educate the community of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College and the community-at-large about music therapy; to enrich our perspective, as students, about the music therapy profession through experience and observation; and to promote the field of music therapy.
