INTERN DATES: June 2017-December 2017

Jesus Garcia grew up in South Gate California (Southern California) and began learning guitar in his early teenage years. When his sister bought him his first guitar his family began to realize that he had a genuine interest in music and signed him up for lessons at a music store in LA where he would later begin teaching. He began a punk rock band with some of his friends called Booked Till Friday and they began taking gigs every weekend at venues around the LA area.

Jesus discovered the field of Music Therapy through his academic counselor at his community college and as he learned more, he knew it was the field that was right for him. He moved to Stockton to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Music Therapy at the University of the Pacific and will graduate May 2017. While studying at Pacific, he had fieldwork opportunities to work at Walton Special Center, a school for children with severe disabilities, Crestwood Behavioral Health, Plymouth Square with geriatrics and Cleveland elementary with preschool children with mild to severe intellectual disabilities. During this time he was hired by Crestwood Behavioral health to work as an activity assistant and has developed a small music therapy inspired group for the residents to participate in weekly. He is currently also a guitar instructor with B Sharp School of Music where he has had many opportunities to teach a variety of age groups. He and his wife currently reside in Lodi California where they both teach music.

He is excited to be an intern with Music to Grow On and is looking forward to the many learning opportunities that await him. His burning desire is to help and improve people’s lives through the science of music therapy in particular those who struggle with mental health.
