Across the nation, the family-focused March will bring communities together to generate funds and awareness to the powerful role of music therapy in the health and well-being of Canadians. Last year, over $25,000 was raised and all proceeds helped make music therapy accessible to more Canadians. Funds raised supported programming for patients in palliative care and for seniors in long-term care facilities. To learn more, visit musictherapytrust.ca.
Music Therapy is the use of music to build therapeutic relationships and address clinical goals. Music therapists work with a broad range of client populations in health care facilities, schools, community settings and private practice.
The mission of the MTAA is to promote excellence in music therapy practice, education, and development, to further the awareness of music therapy in Alberta, and to serve as an organizational agency for its members.
