AMTA's 2011 Conference

All Day Event


Hilton Atlanta
255 Courtland Street, NE
Atlanta, GA , 30308


2011 was a banner year, especially as awareness of the benefits of music therapy have never been more in front of the public! A movie, best selling novels, television news, Internet references and footage of music therapists in action have made 2011 a special time for music therapists. Music therapists from all over the world met in Atlanta, Georgia to focus on advocacy, therapy and leadership as they made plans to expand this momentum into the future.

Thanks to all who presented, volunteered, attended and helped make AMTA's 2011 Conference a Success!
