For the last year and a half we have been creating a percussion techniques course specifically designed for music therapy majors. We have created a syllabus of course content, projects, and exams. This is the first semester it is being taught. The students are in the classroom one day a week and on the second day, students are in the community using the techniques learned in class with one of three populations: geriatrics, developmental disabilities, or at the juvenile detention center. Our research material has been presented at three national music therapy conferences (Detroit, Kansas City, and Cleveland). The course will be critiqued and revised at the end of the semester.
