UE Music Therapy Association
The University of Evansville Music Therapy Association (UEMTA) is a student organization associated with the American Music Therapy Association Students (AMTAS). Membership is open to any full-time or part-time music therapy student.
The purpose of the organization is to increase awareness of music therapy; to promote and encourage academic excellence and professionalism; and to provide services to community institutions and schools on a volunteer basis. Within weekly meetings, members are able to share clinical experiences or intervention ideas. In order to enhance the education of UE students, guest speakers and presenters in fields related to the music therapy profession are often provided.
UEMTA has helped host music therapy meetings and workshops for area professional music therapists and students. In addition, members of UEMTA have given presentations for various local agencies, raised money to purchase percussion instruments for area special education classrooms, and helped support members who attend regional or national music therapy conferences.
