Crystal Hung, Music Therapy Intern at Music to Grow On

Crystal Hung (she/her/hers) is from Kaohsiung, Taiwan. She recently finished her academic course at the University of Kansas, majoring in Music Therapy with an emphasis on piano. She discovered music therapy through her piano teacher, and she was fascinated by the idea of it after reading books and articles about music therapy.

Crystal’s clinical experiences included school-based music therapy programs, community individuals, telehealth home care, and assisted living. The population she has worked with are young children, adolescents, young adults, and senior adults, with various needs. During her time at the University of Kansas, she was a member of Dr. Hanson-Abromiet’s research team, working on projects to develop and strengthen the theory, design, research, and practice of music interventions for infants and their families.

Crystal is excited to explore and learn more about music therapy at Music to Grow On. She looks forward to working with varieties of clients and therapists, strengthening her weaknesses, and becoming a better music therapist.
