COVID-19 Task Force

On Tuesday, March 18, 2020, the AMTA Board of Directors approved the creation of a COVID-19 Task Force to coordinate and support regions, members, music therapists, and students during the healthcare emergency presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The COVID-19 Task Force is chaired by Seneca Block, MA, MT-BC and includes individuals with a background in trauma informed care, disaster response, healthcare administration, and music therapy private practice. We recognize that both the situation and local, state, and federal responses are continually developing, so we will post information via AMTA social media platforms as regularly as possible. We also recognize that much support is needed, and we want to assure you that we are responding as quickly and effectively as possible. If you have questions, please reach out to Seneca Block at Please continue to check AMTA social media platforms for additional updates.
