About MMTA

Massachusetts Music Therapy Alliance (MMTA)

The Massachusetts Music Therapy Alliance (MMTA) is a state organization that was founded in 1980.  MMTA was formed with the intent of bringing together members of the American Association for Music Therapy (AAMT) with members of the National Association for Music Therapy (NAMT).  MMTA provided support for Music Therapists by holding general meetings and clinical presentations throughout the year between regional and national conferences.  In 1998 the AAMT and the NAMT merged to create the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA).   After 30 years, MMTA continues to share ideas, knowledge and support, while working towards promoting the field of Music Therapy in our state and region.  MMTA is a unique organization and provides a resource for anyone with an interest in Music Therapy.

The annual directory lists MMTA members who are professional music therapists and students.  It reflects both the wide range of populations serviced by music therapists as well as the variety of agencies, hospitals, schools, and programs which employ music therapists.
