The Integrative Sound and Music Institute certificate program is a multi-cultural, multi-disciplinary and highly experiential approach to the study of sound, music and voice and their powerful effect on the human organism.  Our program offers students an in-depth study of the therapeutic power of sound and music to transform consciousness and improve well-being.


– The therapeutic and esoteric properties of Sound from western scientific, eastern philosophical, and shamanic belief systems.
– How sound has been used to affect human consciousness — and can make subtle but profound positive changes to the body.
– The intersection of art, science, spirituality & sound.
– How instruments and audio recordings are able to introduce you to higher states of consciousness.
– About the inherent mystical phenomenon of sound.
– Latest application of sound in the field of medicine.
– That we are all vibrational beings; the universe itself is vibrating, and through the careful and conscious use of sound we can tune ourselves to be in greater harmony with that vibration.
