Public Music for Medical Environments (PMME)

The Public Music for Medical Environments (PMME) program prepares musicians for playing in the public areas of a medical environment--lobbies, nurse's stations, care centers, and the like. It is a good "first step" for musicians who may be interested in clinical music, but who want to get just a taste of playing in a medical environment before committing to the study and practice of bedside music. Subject matter includes appropriate repertoire choices, appropriate behavior in clinical settings, and background in the effects of music on the human body, mind, and spirit. A certificate of completion is available upon completion of the book reports, repertoire development, exam, and other requirements specified in the textbook. Please note: PMME training does not qualify a musician to play at the bedside. For information on bedside therapeutic music, please see Harp for Healing's Clinical Musician Certification Program (CMCP).
