Who we are and what we do
BAMT is the professional body for music therapy in the UK, providing both practitioners and non-practitioners with professional support, information, and training opportunities. We provide a voice for the profession, as well as for those who could benefit from music therapy. As a charity, we are committed to promoting and raising awareness of music therapy, developing understanding of music therapy through providing information to the general public, and supporting the advancement of education, research and professional practice.

What we are looking for
BAMT is a charity and a company. The trustees of the charity are also the Board of directors of the company. We are looking for two experienced, strategically minded people to join our Board as trustees. We are particularly keen to recruit members who have one or more of the following skills: 
  • Campaigning

  • The trustees may be asked to take on specific roles and asked to attend additional meetings if necessary.
