Orientation & Observation
Education & Training

The Louis Armstrong Center for Music & Medicine provides a monthly training/observation to help professionals and students attain an understanding and preliminary training of music therapy and specifically its use in a medical context. In particular, we demonstrate how we implement music psychotherapy in a variety of medical settings at Mount Sinai Beth Israel.

This training/observation enables you to have the opportunity to observe and also have some hands-on experiential time. Included in the two-day experiences are selected videos, orientation to various tracks of our programs including assessment, pain, sedation, palliative care, asthma, COPD and Cardiac medical music therapy experiences within the hospital and inpatient and outpatient programs as well. The training includes packets with articles and extras about music therapy in this domain. We have a team of seven music therapists at Beth Israel specializing in specific research projects and clinical areas. The orientation and observation trainees will have the opportunity to encounter several music therapists’ teachings and session descriptions within a variety of settings and units.

Trainees in the past have included: music therapists, chaplains, nurses, social workers, doctors, music educators and development/grant writers. All are welcomed.

O&Os are offered in 2-day or 5-day increments and run from 10 am to 3 pm. The fee is $225 per person and $500.00 per person respectively.
