Music therapist Terry Blaine will present a master class from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Friday, April 4 at SUNY Orange. Entitled "Music Therapy... A Path With Heart", Blaine will give an overview of the music therapy profession, and reflect on “how relationships formed in music therapy can inspire and transform our lives.” The class will be held in Room 23 of Orange Hall which is located at the corner of Wawayanda and Grandview Avenues, Middletown.
A classic jazz vocalist, Blaine graduated summa cum laude from SUNY Buffalo with a bachelor’s degree in classical flute and music. However, Blaine will bring her guitar as a means to demonstrate some of the techniques and methods she learned while earning her master’s degree in Music Therapy from SUNY New Paltz. As a hospice and palliative care music therapist, she is currently working at Hudson Valley Hospice as music therapy program leader. She serves patients and families in Dutchess and Ulster Counties, and trains music therapy interns in providing compassionate care. In 2011, she communicated her enthusiasm for her profession when she gave a presentation on Hospice Music Therapy Internship Training at the World Federation of Music Therapy in Seoul, South Korea. In addition, she is an adjunct professor of applied voice at SUNY New Paltz.
A master class is a class with a master. Each offers an up-close-and-personal opportunity for attendees to gain insight through interacting with a professional who shares his/her knowledge of a profession and/or a subject. Questions are welcomed. SUNY Orange Cultural Affairs offers these programs free to the public, on a wide variety of topics and disciplines, such as music, theatre, art, poetry, and science.
