MHTP holds a conference every other year. 

The Heart-Centered Musician:  Navigating the Tides of Healthcare

MHTP’s 2016 Conference was held July 14 -17, 2016 at The Presentation Center➚ in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains of Los Gatos, California.  MHTP had this lovely conference center to itself, including buildings, pool, spacious and interesting grounds in the redwoods, and hiking trails.

The theme, Navigating the Tides of Healthcare, was intended to inform attendees about new developments in healthcare and how it impacts use of complementary healing modalities, especially therapeutic music.  We will have conference recordings available for purchase.

You might be interested in a song composed by Ruth and Elizabeth Cunningham (PDF download) that we played and sang together at the conference.

The audio files from the 2016 conference are available in our online store. If you do not want to purchase the conference audio files online, you can mail this form with your check to order offline.

Listening to conference audio files and answering a short essay question awards a number of CEUs that are assigned depending on the length of the sessions. Download the CEU quiz here. For more information about continuing education units, go to our CEU page.

Information about the 2018 Conference will be posted as soon as it is available.
