Music Therapy Intern Need to Know's
At Four Seasons, we value our music therapy internship program and the quality care they add to the Four Seasons experience.
Four Seasons is rooted in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. Our main administration building is just south of Asheville, in Flat Rock, NC. Four Seasons serves the greater Asheville area, spanning the 13 westernmost counties of NC. The WNC region has long been a sought-after location for travel and residency: the lush mountain landscapes, rich architecture, historical attractions, and unique Southern culture of the region draw in hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. We experience moderate weather year-round and four mild, distinctive seasons. The region is the ultimate playground for those who enjoy hiking, biking, kayaking, or just being outdoors.
Named Lonely Planet’s Top U.S. Travel Destination in 2017, Asheville itself is a melting pot of vibrant arts, music, and cultures. The small city is home to Biltmore, known as “America’s Castle”, the famous Grove Park Inn hotel, and hundreds of unique restaurants and breweries that earned it the national title “Beer City” several years in a row. A combination of rich diversity, acceptance, and Southern hospitality have created the city’s distinct and popular culture, causing many to long to call Asheville ‘home’, even if just for a while. As tucked away in the mountains as it seems, Asheville is also very connected to the rest of the world: a growing regional airport with direct flights to many large U.S. cities and easy driving access to Charlotte, Atlanta, and Raleigh-Durham only add to Asheville’s convenient and enviable lifestyle.
Depending on when our interns start, they might be working primarily in Asheville, Hendersonville, or in the quaint, small communities west of Asheville. Whatever your interests, our region provides the perfect backdrop for a vibrant personal and professional life.
A competency-based internship agreement must be initiated by academic faculty upon acceptance to the internship. It must include areas of focus (not to include group MT). This must be signed and in place within 4 weeks of the start date. The start date can be delayed if the internship agreement is not completed prior to the start date.
Upon acceptance to the internship, students will be required to complete a background check, drug screen, and TB test, as well as an employee application (this does not entitle interns to a job with Four Seasons upon completion of the internship).
