New Delhi- First IMTA CONFERENCE for MUSIC THERAPY IN THE INDIAN MILIEU is going to be organized on 1st & 2nd December, 2018 at YWCA OF DELHI, 1, Ashoka Road, New Delhi. The Path-breaking Launch of IMTA (INDIAN MUSIC THERAPY ASSOCIATION) has been Proudly Sponsored by Nada Centre for Music Therapy, Chennai. All music and medical experts are welcome.
The objective of this program is to extensively promote Music Therapy in India. With the establishment of some so-called music therapy centers in various parts of India such as Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, etc, many youngsters have been enthused to believe in music and to take up music therapy as a workable profession.
It is heartening to note that a few enthusiastic individuals, despite zero support from the Government and Industries have managed to spread the idea of music therapy across the sub-continent. Many youngsters too, mostly drawn from the background of music, medicine, psychology etc have come forward to take up the challenges of this noble profession with commitment and sacrifices on their part.
These developments in recent times have necessitated the formation of a body to take up their interests and aspirations – as a professional platform and to voice their rightful concerns and justifiable demands, besides working as a national meeting-point to exchange ideas, concerns, knowledge and skill involved in this nascent profession.
Though such an effort, it is hoped that music therapy will also get its rightful place – not only as a therapeutic intervention at the time of disease, but also as a preventive mechanism to de-stress and soothe the populations with the choice of ‘appropriate music’. The Association will strive for achieving more professionalism and more credibility for this ‘future medicine’.
All Music Therapists, Music Healers, Musicians, Music Lovers, Medical Professionals, Psychologists, Social Service Volunteers and even the common people Believe in the power of Music, are eligible to join IMTA as members!
