2014 AMTA Member Survey & Workforce Analysis Now Available

Valuable information about the music therapy profession can be found in AMTA's annually published AMTA Member Survey and Workforce Analysis, "A Descriptive Statistical Profile of the AMTA Membership," which contains a one-of-a-kind, detailed, statistical narrative about demographics, employment, salaries, and other helpful facts. Information regarding employment has been collected since 1990. Each year, with input from members, a set of questions is determined for the membership survey, which is distributed with annual membership dues invitations. Over 1600 AMTA members, as well as non-member music therapists completed the online survey. Using this information, salary comparisons are developed by age, population, work setting, region, state, job title, etc. Statistical information is divided into categories to best serve the varying needs of the music therapy profession across the United States and the broad span of settings in which music therapists work. This document is designed to be used by music therapists, administrators, and members of the general public who are attempting to advance the mission of AMTA: to increase access to quality music therapy services provided by qualified professional music therapists.
