The Association for Music Therapy (Singapore) AMTS was formed on 19/9/2007. This is the pioneering batch of 11 all-female professional Music Therapists who have helped make AMTS possible:
Audrey Ruyters, Patsy Tan, Chen Hsueh-lien, Ng Wang Feng (President), Loi Wei Ming (Treasurer), Clara Chong, Pamela Fisher, Melanie Kwan (Secretary), May Clulee, Tan Xueli and Daphne Phua.
As of October 2011, our total current membership is 24.
We are committed to educating the Singapore public about music therapy and clearing up misconceptions about the field. We also aim to serve as an organizational agency for locally-based Music Therapists. We are keen to get in touch with fellow music therapists, particularly Singaporeans based locally OR overseas, AND foreign music therapists based locally. Drop us a line!
We can also be found on http://singaporemusictherapy.page.tl/.
We welcome professional music therapists who are practising to join us as professional members, and students majoring in music therapy to join as student members. We are looking into opening up other membership categories so please watch this page. Please see membership application form here.
Thank you for your interest in Music Therapy. We look forward to having you onboard!
