Music Therapist, Sing Play Learn with MacPhail®, MacPhail Music for Life™

Jane Tate, MT-BC, has been teaching in the Sing Play Learn with MacPhail® program since 2016. She has taught in various departments at MacPhail including School Partnerships and Group Instruction. In 2019 she joined the Music Therapy department first as an intern, and after successful completion of an internship requirements and the National Music Therapy Board Examination, she joined the team in March 2020.

During her Music Therapy Master’s program, Jane was fortunate to be invited to work with children at a pediatric burn camp in Chongqing, China. This was a life changing experience of three weeks of travel around northern and southern China, visiting many hospitals, and cultural sites, and the honor to learn about music therapy in Asia. The tour culminated in working with children who have experienced life altering burn injuries. It was both inspiring and humbling.

 Jane has a passion in working with the entire lifespan, from babies to elders, forming therapeutic relationships through music. Growing up in England, Jane has been lucky enough to perform as a youth all over the UK and other parts of Europe. Most notably, she was a piano soloist at The Queen Elizabeth Hall in London. She sang for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in The Royal Albert Hall, London. She was a vocalist at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France. In 2016, Jane began publishing pedagogical piano pieces for the “Composers Community” a division of Piano Pronto Publishing.

 Jane holds a Bachelor’s of Music from the University of Saint Thomas in piano performance and piano pedagogy. Jane completed a music therapy equivalency with a Master’s from Augsburg University in 2020.

Favorite non-musical hobby: I like to garden, ride horses and kayak!
