About The MT Guy

My name is Jesse Hickle, and I’m a board certified music therapist currently living and working in Northwest Indiana. I got my undergraduate degree in music therapy from Appalachian State University in Boone, NC, and my Master’s in music therapy from Illinois State University in Normal, IL. Thanks for reading my blog…I hope you get something out of it!

    And you also do great board game reviews! Nice…thanks for reviewing Belfort!! Then I came here and spent a couple hours pouring through all your posts and videos…some I had seen but not all – so it was very entertaining – thanks!!

    Hi Jesse, thanks for the review of Belfort! I’m an Occupational Therapist by day (intrepid game designer by night) and also a musician. One of my areas of interest is modifying musical instruments for use by children with disabilities. Not quite music therapy in the strict sense of the word, but therapeutic use of music, I guess 😀

    I enjoyed your videos as well – It’s very nice when worlds collide and don’t explode on impact!

      Hey, that’s awesome! I used to work as an OT aide, and it was really good for me to understand more about how to work with people with disabilities. I tried to use music whenever I could – guitar lessons, a color-coded piano, group activities, etc.

      Thanks for checking this blog out!

  7. Jessie, give me a call. Need some advice about writing a grant for a Music Therapist position here at St.Vincent Hospital Indy.
