I’m glad you’re here!

Why am I so happy to see you? Because IAMT can’t exist without you! IAMT serves not only the music therapists in Illinois, but the residents as well, and without the dedication at the state level to advance the field of music therapy, our accomplishments at the regional and national levels wouldn’t be possible.

If you’re a music therapist: get involved! None of us work in a vacuum, and involvement in local and national groups not only helps you as a professional, but also our profession as a whole!

If you’re interested in pursuing music therapy as a career: feel free to reach out! We have a variety of avenues for aspiring music therapists to get in touch with those in the field, and we’re more than happy to help!

If you or a loved one has been touched by music therapy: spread the word! Tell your friends, tell your local hospital, tell your local representative or state senator: music therapy is important!

Music therapy has such tremendous potential to touch peoples’ lives, and I’m proud to be a part of it. I hope you’ll join me…
