March Logo.indd

To Music Therapists in the Waterloo Region and Area,

We are the Music Therapy Students Association (MTSA) from Wilfrid Laurier University and are writing to request your participation in a day of awareness for March as Music Therapy Awareness Month.  On Sunday March 30, a group of Music Therapy supporters will be gathering together for an evening of support for the Canadian Music Therapy Trust Fund.

Our planned events include an awareness march from Wilfrid Laurier University to the Waterloo Town Square involving instrument playing and carrying signs, interactive musical activities including song-writing and improvisation at Town Square, a return march to WLU, a short reception with further information about Music Therapy, and an “open mic” evening at Wilf’s Restaurant and Pub where musicians will perform in support of Music Therapy.  For a more detailed description of the planned events, please visit our website at and click on the “March for Music Therapy” tab.  If you are interested in collecting pledges for the March, please contact us for a pledge form or download one from the CMTTF website (

Your participation in this event as a practising Music Therapist would help demonstrate the community of Music Therapy in the greater Waterloo region and provide a richer experience for those learning about Music Therapy through this awareness campaign in support of the Canadian Music Therapy Trust Fund.  As Music Therapy students, we would be privileged to have the experience of interacting with you and learning to work together in the profession we are very excited to join!

Thank you very much for considering this opportunity to join MTSA in promoting the work of Music Therapy.  If you have any questions about the events or our association, please feel free to contact us at
