Music Care Training is coming to Lloydminster April 2-3, 2020.

Music Care Training is a three-level continuing education certificate course that trains professional, volunteers and family caregivers.  The course curriculum has been developed by Room 217 Foundation, a trusted leader in Music Care research, resources, education and training.  Over 1,000 healthcare workers in Canada and the UK have benefited from this training.

The learning goals of this course are to:

Build confidence using the voice as an instrument of care

MCT is a 3-level program that prepares caregivers to use music in their care practice with increased confidence and theoretical understanding. It is suitable for allied health care providers, family and volunteer caregivers, musicians, teachers and any other community stakeholders who would like to increase their knowledge and practical applications of music in care. No prior musical experience or health-sector experience is required for Level 1.

Level 1 will prepare you to:

·       Understand the basic principles of music in care
·       Gain confidence using specific music care techniques
