WRAMTA 2018: March 1-3, Ontario, CA

Our WRAMTA Conference 2018 section has all the information you need to register, book your stay, and plan your weekend. This year, we are thrilled to offer hours of free continuing education credits, including ethics CMTEs. We will continue to update the weekend’s agenda, so stay tuned!


As many of you may have heard, the music therapy community recently lost a tireless advocate, and amazing musician and therapist, Dr. Kay Sherwood Roskam. In lieu of flowers, her family has requested that donations be made in her name to the WRAMTA Intern Scholarship. Sincere thanks to Kay’s family.

Checks may be mailed to the WRAMTA Treasurer:
