College of Music Humanitarian of the Year
Sabina was recently awarded the College of Music's Humanitarian of the Year Award for her active involvement in the community. As President of Alpha Mu, the Music Therapy Organization, Barton has organized music therapy sessions for agencies such as Magnolia Place, Tallahassee Senior Center, Capital City Youth Center and the Gretchen Everhart School for the Trainable Mentally Handicapped. She has also spearheaded fundraising initiatives for Alpha Mu to help members attend major conferences and to complete research projects selected for presentation through the National Conference of the American Music Therapy Association.
As an active member, past treasurer, and most recently co-president of Alpha Mu Alpha, Sabina has had the opportunity to transfer learned music therapy skills to real-life experiences in the community, and in doing so learned what music therapy really is—the ability to use music to reach non-musical goals whether physical, emotional, social, or psychological.
Sabina graduated from Charles W. Flanagan High School in the spring of 2002, where she was ranked in the top ten percent of a graduating class of 1200.
Sabina currently serves as an advisor for the FSU College of Music's Board of Advisors (BOA), assisting incoming freshman and transfers during orientation and auditions. She plans to continue her education at Florida State University and pursue her master's degree in Music Therapy.
