January 2016 OPENING

of the NEW

 International Harp Therapy Program

COMPLETE STUDY-AT-HOME with no travel!


Students entering the program in January of 2016 will enroll in the “Study-At-Home” program.  This consists of 5 Units.  Units 1-3 will provide the foundational courses.  Unit 4 is the Resonance study and Unit 5 is the clinical rotation.  All the units may be completed from home, with units 4 and 5 also being completed in the students’ home locale.  There is the option that Units 4 and 5 can be completed in a location provided by IHTP.  The benefit of studying those units in the provided locations is that the student will develop camaraderie with other students as well as benefit from study with a practicing graduate of IHTP.

As a result of the new program format, IHTP will no longer use the designations of “level 1” or “level 2”.  In order to graduate from the program students will have to complete Units 1-5.  This can be done in just 1 year or a maximum of 2 years which is more than ample time for the study. This is a self-paced curriculum. For students requiring the designation of “recommended for hospice” on the official graduate practitioner listing, they will need to complete a comprehensive Resonance Training.  This aspect of the program will be unveiled in January.

You may apply now for the Program by filling out the application. Upon acceptance, you will receive your mentor. You can get much of your work done by working on the Music Development (through the Creative Harping required 10 DVD lessons) and the Required Readings.  You will find requirements HERE while working on your preparatory lessons until the new Campus doors open.



Exciting opportunities await you in the field of music and healthcare!
