The Music for Healing and Transition (MHTP) 2020 National Conference, scheduled to be hosted by the Longy School of Music, has moved online and will be held via Zoom videoconference. New attendees can register for the full conference, one day, or an individual plenary session. If you registered for the onsite conference, you can switch your registration to the virtual conference or cancel your registration.
The conference presenters below promise to inspire and educate us for the days ahead. While we must be physically apart, we can still come together in support of each other—and, through our profession, alleviate some of the suffering in our weary world.
2020 Conference Keynote Speakers
Kenny Werner, the beloved jazz musician and author of one of MHTP’s most popular required books, said he was very taken with MHTP’s mission of music “in service.” He is a healer and a believer in the power of music to heal not only the listener but the musician as well, as evidenced in his book, Effortless Mastery. His workshops are infused with joy and playfulness. Kenny will start the conference with an inspirational talk on Thursday and continue with an improv workshop on Friday morning.
