International Harp Therapy Program

Here you will find everything you need to get started on harp for healing, finding an appropriate harp, developing skills in harp playing, improvisation, healing harp repertoire, hospital procedures for clinical harpists, finding resonant tone, learning to play the harp with the intention of entering the therapeutic harp field, and the format of our new complete on-line harp therapy training Level 1 program. You will be able to delve further into resonance or go into community music-making programs with the Rainbow of Sound Harp Circles. Welcome!  Here is information about how to study harp therapy on-line.

Classes begin each September.



Starting September (2013), students will be able to receive a LEVEL 1 Certification completely ON-LINE with no travel necessary.

At the end of the 9 monthly studies focusing on all the Standards set forth by the National Standards Board for Therapeutic Musicians (NSBTM –, the Music Development Creative Harping Series and the 45 hour internship, you can receive your certification upon satisfactory completion.

You will then have the option if you would like to continue on to LEVEL 2 – focusing on Finding Resonance Tone and learning further how to Individualize Music based on the Resonance Model OR to delve further into the Interactive Therapeutic Harp Model.
Both models are unique to the International Harp Therapy Program. The Level 2 Resonance Model is an attendance program by the nature of experiential exercises. An Interactive Model can be done at home with the use of DVDs and webinars.
(All graduates until this point of change hold both Level 1 and Level 2 certifications)

Christina’s most recent update on her inspirational experience & insights
from the Brazil Level 2 Module…

“There were two more babies in this intensive care unit. One a little girl with what appeared to be severe encephalitis. The nurses were able to elevate her and I found her resonant tone and she was able to focus and extend her arm to wave it in time with the music. This was probably one of the most profound experiences that I have had.  continue (last page (7) of this LINK)
