Music therapy is the specialized use of music by a credentialed professional who develops individualized treatment and supportive interventions with people of all ages and ability levels to address their social, communication, emotional, physical, cognitive, sensory and spiritual needs.  Please click here for listings of music therapy clinical settings and populations served, and the CBMT Scope of Practice for music therapy.

CBMT is the only organization to certify music therapists to practice music therapy nationally. Since 1986 it has been fully accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA). Over 4,000 music therapists have attained the MT-BC credential, and now participate in a program of recertification designed to maintain or increase initial competence in the profession of music therapy.
