Music for People conducts several multi-year training programs for its members.
- Musicianship and Leadership (MLP) - a four-year US-based program that places equal emphasis on musicianship development in improvisation and workshop facilitation in small and large groups.
- Musicianship and Leadership – Europe (MLP-Switzerland) - a three-year program based in Switzerland that places equal emphasis on musicianship development in improvisation and workshop facilitation in small and large educational or therapeutic groups.
- Musicianship Program (MP) - a four-year US-based program designed for people who wish to focus exclusively on musical skill development in improvisation, without regard to becoming a workshop facilitator.
- Graduate Program – Once candidates have completed one of the programs, they are eligible to participate in the graduate program at MfP workshops. Graduates attend MfP workshops at a reduced fee.
- Certified Facilitators who have graduated the MfP Musicianship and Leadership Program.

“The highest music is where the sound does not destroy the soundless moments in between.
As the musician becomes more and more refined, he can manage to create sound,
and between two sounds he can give you an experience of soundlessness.
That soundlessness touches the heart.”
