Tori Caruso, MT-BC

Victoria (Tori) Caruso grew up in Northern New Hampshire where she learned to love music from a very young age. She has been a performer in the North Country for many years. Tori was accepted to Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts in 2009 where she intended to major in Vocal Performance. However, she discovered the Music Therapy major and found her passion. At Berklee, Tori was given the opportunity to grow and develop her clinical skills with many influential professors and supervisors in a range of classroom and practicum settings. Tori completed her Music Therapy internship at New Avenues for Independence in Cleveland, Ohio. There she was able to further develop her clinical skills working with adults and children with developmental disabilities in a variety of settings. Tori graduated from Berklee in 2013 Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Music Therapy and a minor in Psychology.

Currently, Tori lives in Nashua, NH and services schools in Northern Massachusetts and individuals in New Hampshire as a Board-Certified Music Therapist. She is passionate about working with children in and outside of schools. She hopes to begin working on her Masters in Music Therapy soon. And she is excited to begin working with a new Music Therapy program at the Nashua Community Music School.
