Professional Training in Sound Therapy – An Introduction
Just like life, delivering good quality professional sound therapy training courses is a balancing act. These days, many of us lead busy lives with a lot of demands being made on our time. At BAST we have developed a ‘blended learning’ programme, combining in-class and online study via the BAST learning portal to create a winning formula that enables you to receive a high quality course with minimum in-class time. We are invested in giving people the tools to build a healthy business and make a difference to the health and well-being of others in a safe and professional way.
For those who attendance is not possible, from 2021 we now offer a distance learning option where you can study fully from home.
Whether you are a qualified therapist, teacher, community health-worker, music therapist or are brand new to sound therapy, we are confident that we will have a course to suit your needs. Our courses have a high content of experiential and practical exercises and no previous experience is necessary. The latest research provides a firm foundation for your healthy sound business and adds depth to the journey of discovery that unfolds as you go through your chosen course.
You are able to choose your own pathway through our courses, by combining courses together, you can achieve higher levels of qualification and find modules that suit you.
All of our UK courses are taught at the University of Chichester, Bognor Regis Campus. We can help you arrange transport, accommodation or give directions if needed. Unless you choose a distance learning pathway, you will be required to attend the university for the in-class sessions.
In-class training + online learning + homestudy

Our Learning Zone provides a range of materials to engage with and enable you to deepen your learning including interactive quizzes, videos, articles, research, podcasts and recordings.
Case study sessions enable you to research and develop the techniques and build your business whilst being supported by us.
