Danielle Navarrete, born in Miami, Florida, always had music close to her heart. She studied classical music throughout high school at New World School of the Arts. In 2016, Danielle decided to move to Boston to work towards a Bachelor’s in Music Therapy and a Minor in Psychology at Berklee College of Music. While at Berklee, Danielle was placed at clinical sites with different populations including early intervention students, older adults, adults with mental health needs and women experiencing homelessness. During her placements, Danielle was able to use her fluency in Spanish to connect with clients. She has since then worked as a Music Therapy Intern at the Community Music Center of Boston with children and adults with developmental disabilities. Danielle is thrilled to have the opportunity to be a Music Teacher at Dudley Street Neighborhood Charter School and she looks forward to meeting her students!
