About Alton Barron


The Musician Treatment Foundation

The Musician Treatment Foundation (MTF) provides surgical and related care for the shoulder, elbow, and hand injuries of under- and uninsured professional musicians so they can maintain their livelihoods and keep the music playing for us all. MTF is dedicated to fostering a world that cares for its injured musicians regardless of their ability to pay.

On average, professional musicians spend over 90% of their time performing live on the road, away from personal and medical support systems. Injuries can arise at any moment from the repetitive intensity of playing instruments, and from unexpected accidents. With this in mind, we are launching the first nonprofit of its kind – in design, scope, and breadth – to fund and facilitate upper limb treatment and continuity of care for needful musicians at home and on tour.
