For those taking the exam for the NEW first pilot year of the Music Medicine Facilitation certificate, provided in partnership with UCLArts and Healing:

There will be time at the close of the retreat for you to take the open book exam.  It should take under an hour as its only 14 questions.  Bring your copy of Music Medicine

We just completed negotiations with UCLArts and Healing for this new certificate.  Per their request, there is a one time administration fee paid to UCLArts and Healing for the administration of this certificate.  The fee is only $95.00 (£75

The recommended credential would be MMF, Music Medicine Facilitator.  The recommended way to language this in print or spoken would be, “I am a Music Medicine Facilitator, with my certificate from UCLArts and Healing.”

We are designing a proper button/logo for you to use for branding.

We are GLOBAL!  Last year, Christine trained 30 people in Japan and this year a further 30 in the USA.  You will be the first training cohort in Europe.There is a global Facebook page in the works so you can post and be inspired by your MMF colleagues world – wide.  Of these trained, not all have taken the exam, but all have completed the similar 4-day training program.
