Studies show the beneficial effect of live music to reduce anxiety and ease pain. This month, the nonprofit Music for Healing & Transition Program is initiating a certification program for musicians who would like to create a healing environment for people who are giving birth, prematurely born, dying or recovering form illness or surgery. Students will learn to serve the ill and dying with live therapeutic music at bedside. Serious amateur and professional musicians, vocal or instrumental, are encouraged to apply.
Course schedules, descriptions, and application materials are available at www.mhtp.org. Or contact the local area coordinator, Kristen Iversen, CMP, 385-414-5500 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
