The centers in Netherlands, San Diego, Brazil, will offer 1 week Attendance LEVEL 1 trainings in the languages of the countries embraced.
Christina Tourin and Judith Hitt will continue to offer the LEVEL 2 Resonance Study along with the Interactive Portion of the IHTP and travel to various countries.
At the end of the 9 monthly studies focusing on all the Standards set forth by the National Standards Board for Therapeutic Musicians (NSBTM – TherapeuticMusician.org), the Music Development Creative Harping Series and the 45 hour internship, you receive your certification upon satisfactory completion.
You 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 AND/OR to delve further into the Interactive Therapeutic Harp Model.
