Assistant Professor of Music and Director of Music Therapy

Department of Music

Nicole Jacobs teaches music therapy courses and supervises upper level music therapy practicum students at Concordia University, Nebraska. She is also in charge of advising and recruiting music therapy majors.

Jacobs has earned both a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Master of Music degree in music therapy, and is currently in a Ph.D. program in adult learning and leadership. She has been a board-certified music therapist since 2002. Before teaching at Concordia, Jacobs started her own private practice and still provides clinical music therapy services.

Jacobs enjoys supporting live music, particularly performances by local artists and jazz groups. She and her husband have six children, and the family loves to travel, camp and spend time together. Jacobs used to race sailboats competitively; though she no longer races, she still enjoys a nice sail around a lake.

We have something very special here. The students, staff and faculty are some of the best people I have ever met. I wake up excited to come to campus every morning.
