As Bedside Harp functions as both a healthcare service and educational organization, all
Since 2002 Bedside Harp®, the first ever exclusively hospital-hosted, mindfulness-based harp therapy service organization offering instructional and harp therapy certification programs, has been dedicated to promoting our field by providing service and training programs of excellence, ever raising the bar, setting and maintaining the highest standards for ourselves, our students and our graduates.
Between 2003 and 2016, Bedside Harp’s certification program was exclusively college-based out of Bucks County Community College in Newtown, PA where our master level graduates were eligible to receive 12 college music credits.
Bedside Harp’s certification program has been accredited through the National Standards Board for Therapeutic Musicians since 2017.
Our mission is to promote the therapeutic use of the harp in healthcare and wellness settings.
Committed to making a difference, we are proud that between February 2002 and February 2023, we have:
Delivered a five-minute or longer harp therapy session to 117,364 patients at the 14 hospitals that have hosted our programs!
Played 31,793 documented hours of therapeutic harp in those hospitals!
Taught over 1,000 people, aged 8 to 80+, who never before played the harp, to play for their own healing and enjoyment!
