The institution Pallco - Performing Arts School & Conservatory, located in Porto, was the establishment where I performed the curricular internship, lasting six months, included in the Masters of Creative Industries Management. The present essay structures in two parts: the first part is dedicated to an overview of the internship institution and the experience I developed there; the second part addresses the theme of music therapy and the possibility of applying this therapy in the internship institution. The institution is included in the context of the artistic training, with its different aspects and it is featured in what refers to its structure and functioning. The internship activities are described in detail trying to highlight the acquired skills. The second part of the essay introduces music therapy’s definition and history, fitting this use in schoolar context, national and worldwide, explaining the figure and career of a music therapist. Lastly, it is explored a proposal to implement music therapy in the internship establishment.
