Welcome to the Massachusetts Music Therapy Alliance

We are celebrating our 37th year of supporting Music Therapists in the area and providing ongoing training.  We meet three times a year, offering up to 5 CMTEs (Continuing Music Therapy Education credits).

The 2017-2018 program will focus on Expanding the Clinical Toolbox (part 2): Adapting Your Music Therapy Practice into Preexisting Theoretical Frameworks. A three part series that will present participants with knowledge and experiential tools from preexisting theoretical approaches. Presenters will share their experiences in adapting their music therapy practice within these frameworks.
