The American Music Therapy Association (AMTA) and the Certification Board for Music Therapists (CBMT) are excited to announce that Maryland SB 82 was enacted into law on June 2, 2021. This bill creates a music therapy license, which will be overseen by the newly expanded Board of Audiologists, Hearing-Aid Dispensers, Speech-Language Pathologists, and Music Therapists.

We extend our gratitude to the members of the Maryland Task Force (Mary D’Amato, Tatyana Martin —co-chair, Niki Runge—co-chair, CJ Shiloh, and Elizabeth Smith) for their tireless work, dedication, and advocacy for this bill, which built upon their efforts over the past several legislative sessions. Many thanks as well to sponsors Delegate Sheree Sample-Hughes and Senator Malcolm Augustine for their championship and long-time support. 

Congratulations Maryland music therapists!
