The Australian Music Therapy Association (AMTA) was formed in 1975 by a small group of music therapists who recognised that the profession needed to have a representative body which also accorded professional standards.
Today, AMTA represents 531 Registered Music Therapists by:
- Advocating for the value and accessibility of music therapy;
- Providing registration to music therapists who have completed an AMTA accredited course of training in music therapy and wish to practice in Australia;
- Accrediting university courses to ensure training content and standards are appropriate;
- Providing professional development workshops and events;
- Publishing the peer-reviewed Australian Journal of Music Therapy; and
- Providing a job register for employers and members.
