Sharyn Braff joined Infinity’s team as a Field Study Student in May 2019. She recently completed her music therapy coursework at Berklee College of Music in Boston and is currently eligible for her music therapy internship. Sharyn hopes to complete her Bachelor’s of Music Degree by Spring 2020 and is excited to soon be a board-certified music therapist.
Sharyn has been involved with music in some form since picking up the cello at age five and then the trombone at age ten. Though she had always enjoyed music, Sharyn never considered pursuing it as any kind of profession until she spent an extended period of time in Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh when she was in high school. During that time, Sharyn was introduced to a music therapist on the hospital staff, and she found herself immediately intrigued by the idea of music therapy. After leaving the hospital, Sharyn did extensive research on her own about what music therapy was, who it helped, how it worked, and so much more. Her love of helping others through music led her to Berklee.
Sharyn is currently building her vocal, guitar, piano, and percussion skills as she works toward her music therapy internship.
Sharyn has had experience working with older adults, in pediatric medicine, adult psychiatric care, and special education. During her field study program, Sharyn will have additional opportunities to observe Infinity’s team in action.
Sharyn is passionate about helping all people in all situations, but she is most passionate about working with children.
What is Sharyn hoping to learn this summer?
Sharyn is hoping to build her overall clinical and music skills during her time at Infinity. She is excited to conduct a case study and an adapted lesson in order to build her clinical writing skills.
