How does a 24 hour conference work?

The Online Conference for Music Therapy (OCMT) is a virtual meeting through which music therapists from around the world can learn and interact. The conference is presented in a 24-hour live format through an online platform. Each session is recorded and is made available for all registered participants to view for a period of one month after the live presentation so that music therapists from all over the world can attend the OCMT conferences during their own ideal, daytime hours.

Mission and Objectives


OCMT is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that seeks to offer quality information and research in the professional field of Music Therapy. A key way OCMT does this is through online conferences related to music therapy, enabling participants and professionals from many parts of the world to participate.

OCMT seeks to provide an online platform for music therapists from around the world to connect and share educative experiences about their work and profession.

We desire to provide music therapists with access to state-of-the-art conference and world-class expertise. Valuing the inclusion of all participants, including those with disabilities, OCMT will look for conference delivery software to assist full participation. Valuing students, the organization will endeavor to keep registration fees lower for those currently undergoing training in music therapy.

OCMT desires through internet access to ensure that music therapists do not feel professionally isolated, but instead feel empowered to share views, issues, concerns and positive outcomes. We believe that the more music therapists learn from the different practices across cultures the more powerful this profession will grow. Finally, OCMT seeks to provide quality materials for use by educators and members of the public to further learn about, and understand, the practice of music therapy.

The next conference date is February 6, 2021, GMT.

We look forward to having you participate in the conference this year. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us here.
