Are you a musician with a compassionate heart ready to learn how to use your gifts as a form of palliative and therapeutic comfort care? This summer, Longy is delighted to collaborate with the Music for Healing and Transition ProgramTM, Inc. to offer an intensive, scientifically-based summer institute, through which musicians can become Certified Music Practitioners® (CMPs)TM. Students gain in-person experience with teachers and medical professionals in the historic, cosmopolitan, and intellectually stimulating City of Cambridge—right across the river from Boston.
Longy’s summer institute offers a stimulating and inclusive format for this training in a world-class medical and collegiate environment. All five of the required modules are in-person and interactive. Classes are offered as a residential study on Longy’s campus, with Modules 1 and 2 in one week, Modules 3 and 4 in a later week, and Module 5 on a weekend. Participants in this program may be vocalists or instrumentalists. Both skilled amateur and professional musicians are welcome.
