About us

Therapeutic players and teachers

Our introduction

The goal of the Foundation ‘Healing Harp’ is to create conditions to promote and implement therapeutic harp playing. To achieve this goal in the broadest aspect of health we aim to facilitate a platform and provide basic and continuing education for therapeutic harp players. This includes an educational program which ultimately leads to a recognized certification as an International Therapeutic Harp Practioner.
