What is therapeutic music and why is training necessary?

Therapeutic music is live music played in a therapeutic manner at the bedside to match the immediate needs of a patient/client. A trained therapeutic musician will adapt the style of music being played to help a person find a place of healing and peace. The training offered through Harp for Healing's Clinical Musician Certification Program (CMCP) will provide insight into how to adapt music to meet the needs of children, elderly, hospice, and general care patients. The program is accredited through the National Standards Board for Therapeutic Musicians (NSBTM).
