Elevate Your Skills and Impact as Music Therapist

Hey there, fellow music therapist!

If you're anything like me, you know the struggle of trying to level up your therapy game.

It's a balancing act of maintaining excellence, expanding your impact, and, let's face it,

..finding time for everything from learning to getting creative to earning those CMTEs.

But here's the thing:

... when you're stuck in the same old routine, it feels like hitting a brick wall.

You're dealing with tough clients, workplace challenges, and before you know it, burnout starts creeping in.

...Plus, you're missing out on game-changing strategies that could really amp up your effectiveness.

That's where I come in!

I'm Deborah Spiegel, board-certified music therapist and founder of the Spiegel Academy.

I've helped countless therapists to -

Move from stressing about CMTE deadlines...

... to cruising through their recertification cycles with ease.

Go from struggling to come up with fresh, innovative music therapy approaches..

...to effortlessly tapping into new ideas that supercharge their therapy sessions.

Move from this sense of isolation, being the lone wolf music therapist in their area...

... to being part of a supportive community of peers. 

They're networking, brainstorming, problem-solving together, and it's incredibly empowering.

And it's not just about methodology;

it's about feeling equipped, feeling prepared to tackle any challenge that comes their way.

And here's the best part –

...they achieved all of this without needing to take time off, travel, or spend a fortune on hotels and flights!

Let's face it, not investing in learning and growth can lead to burnout and stagnation.

And... end-of-recertification-cycle panic!

If you're ready to fast-track your progress, make a real impact with your clients, and feel proud of the work you do,

...then the Spiegel Academy is the place to be.

We offer a wide range of convenient, affordable, and quality online CMTE classes taught by experts in the field.

From ethics to specialty populations to business development, we've got you covered.

1. Buy Individual Classes

If you just need a few credits, or a specific topic really appeals to you, you can take one or a few individual classes.

They go into your class portal account and have no expiration dates.

How much are they?

We strive to align with industry standards while providing top-notch education and value to our participants.

The going rate for CMTEs has been $25 per credit for years now, so in our catalog, individual classes are priced accordingly.

For instance, if you were to enroll in a 3-credit class, it would typically cost you $75.
