Level 1 Intensive

The MTD Level One Intensive is an introductory professional course on the use of percussion in music therapy.

  • Created by music therapists, primarily for music therapists.
  • Participants require no prior training for this course.
  • Strengthen your musical skills on hand drums, frame drums, bass drums, and shakers.
  • Survey the research conducted on percussion and therapy.
  • Integrate your skills as a therapist with the salient features of percussion instruments and percussion music.

This course focuses primarily on specific music skills, while also surveying the four methods commonly used in music therapy (re-creative, improvisational, compositional, receptive) through the Taxonomy of Drumming Experiences.  Participants engage in an informal self pre-test/post-test on their own skills.
