The British Association for Music Therapy
In April 2011, BAMT replaced the Association of Professional Music Therapists (APMT) and the British Society for Music Therapy (BSMT). The process of merger had been ongoing for some years and every effort was made to ensure that the new organisation is a rich resource to meet the needs of both public and professionals.
The objects of the organisation are to promote for the public benefit the art and science of Music Therapy and the use and development of Music Therapy for children and adults with a wide range of needs, to advance education in Music Therapy, and to promote understanding of Music Therapy for the general public.
The BAMT is supported and run by the Board of Trustees, Chief Executive and core team. BAMT offers a range of membership options, including Overseas and Associate Memberships. For more information, please click on the Join Us page.
BAMT is a company limited by guarantee (company no 7301585) and a registered charity (no 1137807).
