The American Music Therapy Association (AMTA) and the Certification Board for Music Therapists (CBMT) are excited to announce that, on Tuesday, April 1, 2014, Governor Gary Herbert of Utah signed into law HB 277. This legislation creates a state certification designation for board certified music therapists granted by Utah’s Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing.

Many thanks to the members of the Utah Task Force (Maureen Hearns, Letha Mark, Emily Bailey, Melou Cline, Emily Horton, and Jaycie Vorhees), to the bill’s sponsor, Representative Rebecca Edwards, to Utah State University’s Director of Government Relations, Neil Abercrombie, and to all the music therapists in Utah for your work, dedication, and advocacy for this legislation. Your commitment to securing state recognition for music therapy will serve to benefit Utah’s citizens by allowing them to more easily access music therapy services provided by qualified practitioners.
