We are currently looking for student volunteers! A majority of the volunteer slots that are still available are to help the instrument committee set-up for concurrent sessions. If students complete at least 6 hours of volunteer hours at conference, they are eligible for an $80 compensation that can be in the form of a check or a voucher to the AMTA store (A.K.A. can be used to purchase a music therapy textbook).
