About AMTA

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.
