Certificate in Clinical Musicianship

Taking into account the current restrictions on travel, we have developed an online certificate course in clinical musicianship. Use this opportunity to forward your professional development from an organisation which has been synonymous with Arts-Based Therapy in India. Here is your chance to become a certified Clinical Musician from WCCL Foundation.
A Clinical Musician will be able to apply music in various therapy settings like online individual sessions for children on autism spectrum, cerebral palsy, downs syndrome, or group settings in hospitals, orphanages, palliative care institutions, rehabilitation centres and schools.
If you are thinking, “I don’t know how to play music”, don’t worry, We have you covered. We have designed this course in such a way that every week, we will train you for 1 hour in rhythm and voice. You will learn music from the comfort of your home, practice and submit assignments which will be supervised by our instructors, and eventually, take it one step further by applying what you learn with your clients.
