American Music Therapy Association

AMTA Members enjoy a wealth of benefits as a part of their membership, but perhaps the most important benefit of membership in AMTA is supporting an organization that provides a national voice for music therapy.

AMTA reminds the public about the importance of the work you do. Your membership ensures that publications, public education, research, technical assistance and training necessary to increase awareness of the benefits of music therapy and increase access to quality music therapy services continue.

When you join AMTA, you also become a member of the Great Lakes Region. You receive discounted rates for conferences and all member benefits of the region.

Membership Support

The mission of the GLR of AMTA is to advance and support the mission of the American Music Therapy Association on the regional level and to serve GLR-AMTA members.

The Executive Committee of GLR of AMTA has created a Membership Support fund to assist members in the region who may be experiencing temporary financial struggles. This assistance is intended to help GLR of AMTA members with paying AMTA membership dues or continuing education opportunities.

Please note that a member may not receive Membership Support funds from GLR of AMTA more often than once in a three year period.
