This is a directory of trainings currently being offered by AMI-endorsed trainers. Training in the Bonny Method is completed in three levels, over at least three years. While each training program has its own approach, all programs lead a trainee to become a Fellow by the Association for Music and Imagery. Trainers are AMI Fellows and highly experienced Bonny Method practitioners who meet and maintain additional standards in order to provide AMI-endorsed training in the method.

Please contact the training programs directly for specific information about schedules, content, cost, and location.
