The Music for Healing & Transition Program, Inc. (MHTP), a nonprofit educational corporation, began its certification program at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, in September, with classes continuing this month.
MHTP is a course of study that trains individuals to serve the ill, dying, and all those who may benefit, with live therapeutic music at the bedside. Graduates receive the title Certified Music Practitioner (CMP). Among the populations CMPs serve are the critically ill, the chronically ill, the elderly, the dying, premature infants, surgical patients, birthing mothers, and the injured.
Courses designed for amateur or professional vocalists and instrumentalists are held in five intensive weekend modules: Module 2, November14–15, 2015; Module 3, January 9–10, 2016; Module 4, March 5–6, 2016; and Module 5, May 6–8, 2016. Students may begin the program with either Module 1, 2 or 3, and complete the requirements of classes, clinical practicum, selected reading and reporting, and musical development within two to three years. Each student receives an advisor to guide him or her through the program.
