Please share your thoughts, suggestions, and visions for the future of music therapy! We value your feedback and the wisdom of your experience. Please keep the following information in mind as you share your comments:
The history of the Commission is available on our webpage at
The Commission previously identified the following two questions for your consideration and analyzed the results of your feedback:
• How do YOU envision music therapy evolving in the 21st century?
• What do you want this Commission to know?
The themes that emerged from your feedback on these two questions are included as part of our 2020 Regional Conference Presentation, available on our webpage at
The Commission also analyzed the results of your feedback on our five charges. As a reminder, the Charge from the AMTA Board of Directors to the Commission on the Education and Clinical Training of 21st Century Music Therapists is to:
• identify inconsistencies within degree programs to support clinical practice in a changing world;
• identify inconsistencies among and between National Roster and University Affiliated Internship programs;
• recommend changes to enhance current education and clinical training practices;
• support the ongoing efforts to increase state recognition of the MT-BC credential;
• and support efforts to encourage diversity and inclusion in the profession.
We shared the emerging themes from your feedback at the online AMTA national conference in November 2020. The video of that presentation is available on our webpage (
