The New England Region of the American Music Therapy Association proudly presents its 2024 regional conference! This year, we want to celebrate the music therapists and music therapy students in our region as we offer, Harmonizing Communities Across Generations.

Please join us as we show gratitude for all of the music therapists who have helped our region grow into the “Small but Mighty” force that we are, and help us embrace and welcome our region’s students, who are paving the way for the future of our field and region.
