Therapy Harp Training Program

Welcome to the Therapy Harp Training Program

Director: Helen Morrison (B.Ed Mus), Australia

The Therapy Harp Training Program (THTP) is a fully online course for people who are interested in becoming qualified as a Certified Healthcare Musician (CHM). Instruments may include Harp, Piano, Voice, Dulcimer, Recorder, Flute and Guitar, and it is suggested that you have at least one year of experience playing your instrument before commencing the course.

The course is divided into four (4) Units, and you will work on a range of practical and theoretical aspects, an independent research project, book reviews and videos.

Support is available from the Director via email and through your assessments, the private Facebook page, regular Zoom meetings and newsletters.

THTP students are trained to offer healthcare music for patients and clients in a range of community settings. Healthcare music may be played in hospitals, nursing homes, hospice facilities, wellbeing centres, yoga studios, online sessions and more.

At THTP we view healthcare music as part of a holistic approach to wellbeing, and we acknowledge that each patient or client is an individual with their own unique and changing needs, values and beliefs.

We encourage a compassion-based approach and the wellbeing of the whole person's body, mind and spirit is at the forefront of what we do. Music enhances the health and comfort of the patient or client bringing a sense of peace, calm and connection.

The Therapy Harp Training Program is proud to be accredited by the Australian Therapeutic Harpists Association (ATHA), and THTP graduates are eligible to apply for full membership of this excellent organisation.
