Enjoy some soothing tunes from a Certified Music Practitioner: We are trained to provide live, therapeutic music for patients at their bedside. Every Thursday, we bring a relaxing moment to you. #ThursdaysWithTherapeuticMusic #mhtp #twtm

Introduction

Good evening.

Welcome to Thursdays with Therapeutic Music from MHTP, the Music for Healing & Transition Program.

We train and certify musicians to provide live therapeutic music, one-on-one, at a patient’s bedside.

My name is … and I am a graduate of MHTP, called a Certified Music Practitioner. [Add any other role you have with MHTP. Add where you work as a CMP if applicable.]

Every Thursday we offer about 20 minutes of music for your relaxation and enjoyment.

If this were a session with a patient, I would be adjusting the music in response to my patient’s reaction as I play. Obviously, I am not with a patient right now; I’m with you. What I will be offering is an example of the types of simple but beautiful music that CMPs play or sing for patients.

So settle in, close your eyes if you wish, and enjoy the music.

Closing

Thank you so much for listening to Thursdays with Therapeutic Music from MHTP, the Music for Healing & Transition Program.

We train and certify musicians in the art and science of providing live therapeutic music for body, mind, and spirit, one-on-one at a patient’s bedside.
