Testimonials

“I did want to tell you how clear you made finding the modes. I have another book and have touched on the modes in theory, other webinars and just trying to figure them out on my own. After watching your first free lesson I understood, finally, a way to understand.” – SL

“I really appreciated how much you gave to the workshop I went to in Auckland during the year, with lots of patience for people like me with limited ability.” – GB

“You and my harp “Angelita” were such an important part of my life and brought me such joy. I’m happy to help spread that joy to others.” – JT

I didn’t know what to expect from Christina or indeed from the whole teachings.  I was surprised by how down-to-earth, encouraging, and humorous she could be.  She seemed to be one part musician, one part teacher, one part entrepreneur and one part mystic. -RS

“You are a marvelous teacher. I am still learning from the class you led in San Diego so many years ago!” – RM

“I absolutely love Christ in Tour in and her lovely passion that clearly shows through her music and how many she has touched, including myself. I have to tell you, after pursuing the Harp for a while, there has only been two Harpists that I have really play with true passion. You are the main one I have heard and fell in love with your music. Sure a lot of people can play, but to truly play with passion, You, I admire very much”.- CH

TESTIMONAL for the IHTP Program:  “I love the description of the IHTP’s intense studies as “a Hogwartz mystery school for musicians”….. I chose to enroll in the IHTP  because I was so impressed by Christina Tourin’s profound spirituality…..her life has been such a mystical journey and she has birthed her visions into reality which has brought such great healing into this world. In 2010, I was corresponding with her via e-mail for copyright permission for two songs she had composed which I loved and wanted to use on my harp Cd…that eventually led to a telephone conversation. Immediately after having spoken with her via telephone, suddenly, the walls of the room disappeared and I was flooded in bright sunlight….it was an amazing experience….before that conversation with her, I did not have the courage or stamina needed to fulfill a long cherished dream of becoming a certified harp therapy practitioner. It has been an absolutely magical journey…..but so grounded in the science of sound. Perhaps the IHTP is so special because it gives science a soul. “- JH

“I can’t express how much taking the harp therapy program has changed my life. I never thought it could lead to something so wonderful. I am closing the music school that I run, to give 100% to my new job. I will forever be grateful to you both for your encouragement and leadership.” – SD

“I am a music therapist. I can happily say that the IHTP program has greatly enriched my playing, perception and therapeutic resourcefulness.  It has also provided me with a sense of rapport and belonging to a community of harp therapists not available as yet in the field of music therapy.  Finally, Christina’s concept of “Resonant Tone” has been a special ally not only during regular sessions, but especially when playing for patients who are non-verbal, moaning, or comatose.  Her way of showing how to use double resonance has been indispensible when dealing with annoying environmental buzzers and beeps.  Before this program, I would have likely stopped the music until the extraneous noise finished.  Now, I can easily incorporate the rhythm and pitch into the music that best serves the patient/client in the moment.” -JP
