42nd Australian Music Therapy Association National Conference
Melbourne • September 16th - 18th, 2016


On behalf of the National Conference Committee, I would like to invite you to the 42nd Australian Music Therapy Association National Conference to be held in Melbourne between September 16th - 18th, 2016.

Last year, we celebrated our 40th anniversary as a profession and a national association. We paused to reflect on our many achievements as music therapists and the unique terrain we have travelled together. This year, we consider our role as consultants and collaborators in nurturing equitable participation in music for health and wellbeing. We contemplate the diverse forms of partnerships that are essential for the continued growth of the music therapy profession and the people we work with.

The National Conference Committee are working hard to prepare a diverse program of presentations, posters, workshops, performances, discussion forums and social events that are sure to impress. We encourage you to join us in Melbourne to explore, celebrate and create partnerships in music.
