The Music Therapy Academy (MTAcademy) was initiated in response to a growing need and request for further education about music therapy techniques and approaches from music therapists, health care professionals, and the general public. The MTAcademy provides workshops and webinars both in-person and online.

Operating in Hamilton, ON, Canada, the MTAcademy aims to #RaiseTheBarInHealthcare through education, mentorship, research, and engaging with the community. #CollaborationIsKey in reaching this goal.

The profession of music therapy is regulated by the Canadian Association of Music Therapists (CAMT). Many music therapists use the act of psychotherapy in their work, and are therefore (in Ontario), also regulated by the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. Both of these organizations require continual professional development, as do most healthcare professional bodies. We are happy to help others reach their professional development goals!
