Detailed descriptions of the workshops

MTABC offers workshops that will build your professional resources, musically and academically. Attending these workshops will enable you to refresh, expand and explore your professional skills as well as make connections with other music therapists. We are continuously looking for ideas and suggestions for future professional development workshops and potential presenters.

These workshops are a complimentary member service available to all MTABC members. Non-MTABC members are welcome to attend at a cost of $35/workshop. CE certificates will be given upon completion of the workshop. Where possible, these workshops will be recorded and uploaded to the “Recorded workshop” area within a month.

MTABC introduced several different professionals from various backgrounds who offered us invaluable resources this past year. All of our workshops were well attended by our members and often we were at full capacity.

Our CE workshops in the Lower Mainland will help develop skills to support the growth of music therapy in BC.

Please check our website for upcoming CE workshops or if you have ideas for a workshop topic or presenters, please contact the CE workshop chair at:
