Welcome! My name is Amber Rogers, and I am a board-certified music therapist and active member of the American Music Therapy Association.
Through Sequel Melody LLC, I virtually coach/tutor aspiring music therapists around the country who are preparing to take the CBMT board exam, and I also provide evidence-based music therapy services to clients of all ages at my in-home studio.
From humming hymnals in Haiti to presently teaching test prep in Texas, the arc of my life has been an amazing journey that has cultivated my professional passions.
After growing up in New Jersey, I attended Oklahoma Baptist University where I was introduced to the amazing field of music therapy and earned a Bachelor of Art in Church Music. I went on to serve as a behavior therapist with organizations such as the Autism Treatment Center and Child Study Center in San Antonio and Fort Worth, Texas respectively. I continued my training and clinical internship at Texas Women’s University, earning my Master of Arts in Music Therapy.
Currently, my family and I reside in the Dallas/Fort Worth area where I have the daily privilege of supporting the needs of my clients, including as the music therapist for a local independent school district.
Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program.
