Welcome to the International Harp Therapy program!

Discover the world of therapeutic music with the harp! Learn how to become a certified harp therapy practitioner through the IHTP program. Develop skill in playing the harp; learn how to work intuitively with patients and clients; weave familiar songs together with improvisational and unfamiliar music as you work with your clients. You will learn useful repertoire for many situations in healthcare environments; how to find the harp that’s best for you; and best practices to work as a therapeutic musician in a clinical setting.

You will learn how to find and use a patient’s resonant tone, how to create an interactive music program for  senior center residents,  youth center attendees, children with special needs, and much more!

Consider a career in community music-making with the Rainbow of Sound program and Harp Circles.

 Future Design of the
International Harp Therapy Program

For close to 3 decades, the Int’l Harp Therapy Program (IHTP) has trained graduates from 22 countries across 5 continents!

In 2010 we began our on-line educational program. This enabled us to offer high-quality education to those around the world interested in using their musical talents for well-being benefits of humanity.

The time has come where we have established our global Affiliate Partner Programs while many of our golden leaders are looking forward to their retirements.  Our new leaders are now prepared to offer you the same excellent training in their countries.  Christina and her Resonant Kinesiology team, plan to continue teaching the experiential specialty Level 2 Modules (ESM) focusing on Resonant Tone and Interactive methods using the harp until 2023. Our affiliate programs will be providing the prerequisite for the in-depth training that makes the IHTP unique.

NOTE:  We no longer offer our on-line format however we continue offering the Attendance Modules in the USA, Europe, Asia, Australia and with new programs starting in other countries.

What does this mean for you if you cannot travel to one of our Attendance Modules?    We  are also teaming up with our Sister NSBTM Program Harps for Healing for those who cannot travel extensively but are able to come to our Experiential Specialty Module on going deep into Resonant work and Interactive skills. We welcome you to join us for a very exciting career!

If you are interested in preparing for entrance in the future to our Attendance programs, Christina  offers 2 FREE webinar lessons where you will learn;

2 modal healing pieces of music that can be submitted for your application.
You may choose to continue with lessons #3-#10 for a small fee.
