Belmont American Music Therapy Association for Students, or BAMTAS, is a student-led organization for music therapy majors.

The Student Chapter of the National Association for Music Education is dedicated to advancing the Profession of Teaching Music. Belmont University Collegiate NAfME members have the opportunity to attend monthly meetings related to their future profession, to attend a music education workshop during the spring semester, and to receive journals that enhance knowledge in their chosen field of study.  The national NAfME organization also informs the public about the values of music education.  NAfME sponsors a “Music in Our Schools” month and completes a variety of public relations work. The association encourages music teachers to see their work as vital to the development of young children, and motivates and encourages teachers to approach music education as something to which every child needs exposure.
