Music Therapy Awareness

Music Therapy Awareness Month

March is Music Therapy Awareness Month in Canada.  It’s the perfect opportunity to learn how and when to access the services of a Certified Music Therapist (MTA).

This year’s campaign asks the public to “Look for the MTA.”   There are many individuals playing guitars, pianos, metronomes and ukuleles out there in the hospitals and community – but if you want therapy (and the world needs that more than ever right now) then “look for the MTA.”

Here are the Key Bullets for the Campaign 2021:

  • *Follow us on social media this month to learn more.
  • *Please share the “Look for the MTA” images.
  • *Always use the hashtag #doseofMT each time you share the image in addition to the #hashtags you typically use. We will be following the #doseofMT hashtag carefully this year.
