The teaching concept of the Online School for Music Therapy & Tools:
Through different media, the individual topics are presented in an interesting and varied way. Compressed to the essentials, the courses help you to quickly put the acquired knowledge into practice. You can access the courses via a computer, tablet or cell phone.
The courses are designed as self-study. This means you can start at any time and study at your own pace and according to your possibilities, with free time management.
With a study time of approximately 4-6 hours a week, you can complete the entire course in 12-18 months.
In each course, you will first find an overview of the topic. Behind this is a "Lesson" button, here you will be guided through the topic in individual steps. In this further information and contents are inserted.
At the end of the lesson you go back to the overview of the topic, at the end of which you will find the "Control questions" button. Here you can check your acquired knowledge and then submit the processed questions to us. After you submit the control questions of all lessons of the course to us, we will send you a certificate of attendance.
Certification Continuing Education:
For each instructional course, you can earn a certificate to prove your qualification. This requires an online final exam, which we charge €60 each.
The training is divided into six modules, at the end of each of which there is an online exam. After you have successfully passed all online exams, you will receive a certificate from the Online School for Music Therapy & Tools. The costs for the certificate are included in the training costs.
You can use the acquired qualification in Germany by name and e.g. in independent work, own practice or in employment in clinics, medical, nursing, pedagogical, rehabilitative, sports, educational, social institutions.
Through the forum, you have the opportunity to contact the speaker, or other participants, for example, to ask questions or exchange ideas.
In addition, you also have the option of booking individual online teaching units to accompany your studies.
These teaching units can include the following:
