The INNER SOUND method

School for Inner Sound logo

The SCHOOL FOR INNER SOUND, is devoted to the education and preparation of sound therapists who are certified to work with the INNER SOUND system. Courses are available at the School's locations in the UK, Europe and the USA as well as through distance learning.

We offer a range of courses, seminars, workshops and practitioner trainings (some by correspondence) in sound therapy and therapeutic music that cover many aspects of this new and exciting field of alternative medicine. Sound and music healing/therapy have a rich tradition in the West which has lain dormant for over 2000 years. The SCHOOL FOR INNER SOUND breathes new life into sound and music as a therapeutic medium in the world today.

The basis of the INNER SOUND techniques taught at the school are a collection of motifs (short melodies) and intervals, the uses of which have been defined by Arden and Jack Wilken. The motifs and intervals can be found in the work of Pythagoras, in classical music, and Gregorian and Sufi chants among others.

Anyone can learn to apply these techniques of sound healing/therapy using their voice, tuning forks, and most musical instruments or recorded healing music. No prior music education is required. You can learn how to create unique 'personal' compositions for clients, friends or family using the specific elements of the motifs and a variety of instruments from an extensive collection of musical sound bites. Whether you want to produce the sounds yourself or use recorded material, the SCHOOL FOR INNER SOUND provides a wide range of sound healing tools.

Our method is especially applicable to all areas of music education as well as use by professional and/or budding musicians to improve their contact with and expression of their music and their ability to improvise.
