OUR RESULTS, YOUR BENEFITS

 

Musicianship

Drum Circle Facilitation · Guitar 101 · Piano Improv · Ukulele · World Rhythm · Latin Rhythms · Songwriting

“This course provides a better understanding as well as confidence of how to facilitate a drum circle with clear instructions for participants to follow as well as empower them to facilitate. After taking this course, I feel I will have more confidence in facilitating a drum circle and helping participants to facilitate. Christine Stevens did a great job!” –T. Jackson, MT-BC | Roseville, CA

“This course is so motivating! My guitar skills were good enough, but now I feel like, wow, why didn’t I know this stuff before?? It’s so great and easy to incorporate. A breath of fresh air! Now, I will not be as hesitant to improvise given these keys and chords. I’m also excited to try to mix up the sound of my I-IV-V songs that have become a little stale!” –Kimberly Glass, MT-BC | Duncannon, PA

The Piano Improv course was hands down, THE MOST FUNCTIONAL piano course I’ve ever had, including college courses and years of private lessons. Before taking this course, I had proficient skills to play the piano, but had difficulty figuring out how to apply the characteristics on my own and had no idea where to start. Lauren was a great teacher and I’m so thankful I decided to give this course a shot. My confidence in my skills increased after just a few videos and I’ve been using piano frequently in my clinical sessions ever since.” – Sarah Winkler, MT-BC

Therapeutic Mastery

iPad Course · Clinical Applications of Drumming · Imagery · Self-Care · End of Life · Tunes for Teens · School Settings · Latin Rhythms · AAC Devices

“This course was perfect! It was very comprehensive and well organized. I liked how accessible Bonnie was. The several times I emailed her with questions, she responded in a very timely manner. Great support! I am excited to keep advancing with technology and bringing new experiences to my clients.” –Danielle Zick, MT-BC | Apple Valley, MN

“What an information and idea packed course this has been. I’m particularly grateful for the activity ideas and the final creativity worksheet and action plan…This was exactly the sort of course I crave – facts, research, practical application, video demonstration, activity ideas…perfect! I really enjoyed the course. Thank you for putting it together.”

–Denise Travis, MM, MT-BC | East Lansing, MI

Business Mastery

Cultural Ethics · Insurance Reimbursement · Web Ethics · Website Builder · Private Practice Starter · Clinic Spaces · Marketing · Large-Scale Contracts

“Would I recommend this course to others? Of course! I have already started to bill insurances! ? Successfully!” –Regan Thompson, MM, MT-BC | Watseka, IL

“After taking this course, I am inspired to pursue some sort of Community Music Therapy program in my private practice. I also liked how many different categories of ethics were included, such as in business, with our clients, and in our work settings. I would recommend this course because in addition to providing an overview to ethical considerations and being culturally aware, it gives some great food for thought on how we should look at culture, diversity and ethical standards within our music therapy culture. It really gave me a chance to become more aware of myself and think about specific situations with my clients.” –Meredith Bradley, MT-BC | Pearl River, LA

I am NOT a computer person, and I was concerned this course would be way beyond my capabilities. Online Zennn created a positive experience for me rather than another failure in the “tech” world. Now I have a much greater awareness of my online presence. And more importantly, I have control over my website– to change and enhance things as needed, and I have the confidence to do it! The feedback from Kat was amazing. She responded quickly to comments and gave detailed instructions on how to proceed.” — Cindy Long, MT-BC | Reading, PA

Ethics & Essentials

Cultural Ethics · Web Ethics · iPad Course · Clinical Applications of Drumming · Private Practice Starter · Clinic Spaces · School Settings · Medical Settings

“I can easily differentiate ethics when it comes to the black and white, but gray areas are harder for me to distinguish. This course has definitely heightened my awareness of other cultures, how my own values affect my therapeutic relationship, and how those of my client have a role as well. I see the value of doing thorough research and incorporating elements of their cultural music to facilitate their comfort and create an optimal environment for their progress. I would recommend this course because I feel like I am much better equipped to work with those of other cultures and to limit and try to prevent any biases or prejudices on my part, even if they are subtle.” –Carolyn Stoller, MT-BC | Mediapolis, IA

“This course provided the framework and the tools to assist in making the best decisions for ourselves and most important, those we serve. Rachelle Norman’s expertise and insight was extremely helpful, and she gave an excellent presentation! She was knowledgeable, honest, positive and encouraging. Once again, this course along with the AMTA Code of Ethics, highlighted why I am so proud to be part of this incredible profession. Thank you for providing these courses!” –Pamela Axler, MT-BC | Clarksville, MD
