Claire Mairéad Corrigan is studying Human Development and Family Studies and minoring in American Sign Language (ASL) at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and will be graduating in May 2018. She has always had a passion for playing musical instruments and working with people with disabilities. Claire is very excited to combine these two passions as an intern for Allegro Music Therapy.
In her work experience at After Gateway, a day program for adults with profound disabilities, Claire finds it rewarding to help the individuals that are non-verbal express themselves through music. In music therapy sessions provided by Allegro at After Gateway, she helps individuals play different instruments such as the drums, bells, and shakers. Claire is thrilled to be able to intern for the music therapists. She also is excited to participate in the other music therapy services provided to individuals with Alzheimer's and dementia, those in the neurologic music therapy sessions, as well as groups in the Intergenerational Music therapy Sessions. Claire plans to continue her education onto graduate school studying music therapy.
