Therapeutic Harp Focus Area

We present workshops devoted to helping you take care of yourself as well as using the harp to take care of others' needs. We have fewer Therapeutic Harp workshops this year, compared to years past, so if you're looking to delve deeply into this topic we suggest spending a lot of time with some of the presenters at their booths and tables in the Exhibit Hall. You'll find Bedside Harp and the Music for Healing & Transition (MHTP) program. If you're already working in this field, be sure to check out the CEU list that follows to guide your workshop choices so you can earn Continuing Education Units.

Some of the Presenters in this Topic Area:

Edie Elkanedie elkan
