About This Class

Learn fool-proof methods you can start using today to relieve pain and cure illnesses using art instead of meds.

As the general appeal for traditional medicine is on the decline, alternative & non-intrusive ways of healing are gaining in popularity. That is the case of music therapy. If you play music, you know the power that a simple melody can have on someone's emotions. If not, how is it that people cry when hearing their national anthem played out? Or how is it, that a lullaby can bring a raging baby to peace within seconds?

In this course, we'll explore the many facets of music therapy, dive into the profession of music therapist and everything it entails, from skill requirements to places of employment, salary, types of work, etc.

We will also have a look at some of the real-life methods used by therapists and dissect the underlying principles that make them effective.

Moreover, you will have the opportunity to sit in the patient's chair several times throughout the course. You will be guided through therapeutic exercises and witness firsthand the transformational power of music.

Joining me in instructing this course is my dear friend Declan Fry. I brought Dec in to help me teach this course because, as an active musician raised in a family of psychologists, he had the enthusiasm, skills and knowledge I was looking for to produce a course that delivers beyond the expectations of someone looking to explore the topic of art therapy.

We hope you will enjoy taking this course as much as we've enjoyed putting it together.

It's an honour to have you with us, and we wish you a pleasant and enriching experience.
