Each year Maryville University organizes Maryville Reaches Out – where students, faculty and staff are encouraged to donate their time, efforts and skills to a non-profit organization for a day. This year, our music therapy students and faculty worked with St. Louis Arc, a non-profit, United Way agency that provides support and services to more than 3,000 adults and children with developmental and intellectual disabilities, and their families, throughout the St. Louis metropolitan area.
Our students compiled a list of song and music based activities for the residents of St. Louis Arc, and learned and practiced the songs shortly before leaving for St. Louis Arc.
