A lot of you have asked me these questions so I thought I should share them with the rest of our community.

Q: Can people join the group after the course starts? 
A: No. Once the course starts the group is closed. The privacy of the cohort is also what makes our explorations safe, deep, and intimate. 

Q: Are you offering this course again later this year? 
A: No. The reason it is called Course 2021, and the previous one was called Course 2020, is because I am planning to offer this course only once a year. I'd love start an advanced one with these two cohorts and that's where my next commitment shall be. Yet 'destiny does destiny', and we will see what feels right in the flow...

Q: I can't attend some of the sessions. Is that ok?
A: Yes. All sessions are recorded and shared. Thanks to the MetaMusic Network platform they will all be available in a super well organized space with all shared materials and resources. In addition, there will be opportunities to meet during the week through the MetaMusic Network with practicums, lectures, and any sub-group you might like to create and attend. Please watch my presentation to learn more about it:

Q: Do I need to have a music instrument or to be a musician?
A: No. You are an instrument and a sound alchemist already in your daily life. Just come and share that - your voice and your own gifts are what is needed. Plus we will make instruments together... that's my favorite part ;o)

Q: Are there any Scholarship spots left?
A: Yes. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. I will leave it open till the end of the registration deadline, this Saturday at 10am. I want to thank those of you who are helping me with the Scholarship Funds. I am honored to say that by now we have 27 individuals who have received either a partial or a full scholarship. We are allowing the human potential to flourish beyond any human condition or restriction. How beautiful is that? Just a deep joy. If you have the opportunity, please join us by making a contribution in the registration ticket area called Scholarship Funds. Any amount is appreciated. 

Q: Can I register only for a single part? 
A: No. The different parts are just expressions of a 'whole' and they need to be embraced as such.

Q: Can people join the Full Course after it starts? 
A: Yes. You can still purchase the Full Course and get the benefit of the video recordings and the resources shared.


Q: Can I register only for a single part? A: Yes. You can take any single module of your interest. These are all stand alone sessions even if they are conceived as parts of a whole.

Q: Do I need to have a music instrument or to be a musician?
A: No. You are an instrument and a sound alchemist already in your daily life. Just come and share that - your voice and your own gifts are what is needed. Plus we will make instruments together... that's my favorite part ;o)

Q: Can I get benefit from the course if I miss the live classes?

A: Absolutely! You can access the recordings and resources of all course at your convenience. Thanks to the MetaMusic Network platform they will all be available in a super well organized space with all shared materials and resources. In addition, there will be opportunities to meet during the week through the MetaMusic Network with practicums, lectures, and any sub-group you might like to create and attend.

Q: What’s a virtual course?

A: It’s a great way to engage live and pre-recorded teachings and each other from the comfort of your home! All you need is a computer, mobile device, or telephone. If there’s more than one person in your household taking the course, you’ll each need your own connection. We use Zoom video conferencing to make it just like an in-person event, where you can ask questions and deepen your exploration of the course themes. There’s no additional charge for connecting to Zoom with your computer or mobile device.

Please share MetaMusic Course 2021 with those you think might be interested and a good match. A powerful cohort of beautiful Beings is coming together and it's such a privilege to connect, interact and grow together.

I look forward to embarking these explorations the paths of wisdom together.

Take very good care of yourself,

Laura Inserra

Some of my instruments

In The Beginning, there was Sound

 " Sound is a vibration. A vibration creates movement, and through movement, everything manifests, transform, and evolve. This is the most simple, ancient, and profound principle in Nature. "


​"Laura Inserra is a rare example of power, mastery, and grace in the human form.  Her work is unlike anything I have experienced before in my career or life.  Through transformational sound and vibration she enables individuals and groups to transcend the rational mind and access deeper layers of knowing.  She invites participants into an experience that unleashes creativity, emotion, connection and possibility. Part musician, shaman, intuitive, and teacher, Laura will take you on a journey between worlds that you will never forget. Run swiftly towards this work if you are looking for deeper meaning and new answers to old questions. Laura is an extraordinary treasure that is a privilege to invite into your life or organization." Catherine Gray - The Trium Group

"Laura is able to use live music and sound to create a field of connection among a group that opens them up to go deeper with one another and with the subject at hand. It's a tremendous thing to experience and witness! I'm so grateful she was able to work with us at a recent retreat. Her work is part performance, part facilitation, and part healer. What impressed me the most is not only is Laura a supremely talented musician-- playing so many unique instruments and all with great skill - she's also an insightful and empathetic facilitator who made an effort to understand our overall program and then suggest the best way her offering could augment and help serve the overall mission of the gathering. She added a layer of depth and clarity of facilitation that was appreciated and she really knows how to read a room. It was a joy to work with her!" Jess Rimington, - The Rules

“I call her a ‘music-smith’, like a wordsmith or blacksmith because of the way in which she embodies music and sound. She is a truly gifted musician, composer, and teacher. She is incredibly skilled at teaching the complexities of the Hang: technique, sound, resonance, melody, incorporating the different voices and harmonies. My lessons are so inspiring and healing on multitude levels. What I am learning translates to many areas of my life and spiritual practice. Our lessons are not only about playing the Hang, but about breathing, relaxing the body, being present, and, from this place, one can open to the magic, joy, essence of the Hang. She is incredibly skilled at teaching this amazing and unique instrument. I have immense gratitude and respect for Laura’s instruction and wisdom, talent and experience, and most of all, for the beauty and integrity of her relationship with the Hang.” Deb Grant - Expressive Art Therapist

"Laura Inserra is a dream of a music teacher. She is both classically trained and a gifted improviser. Laura is attuned to the needs and capabilities of her students. She know how to teach to their level, inspire confidence, and encourage excellence. She knows when to support and when to push to the next level of accomplishment. Laura teaches the disciplines of musicianship in an atmosphere of playful acceptance. She creates a safe place in which to learn, an inspiring place to gain competence, and grow in the language of music and expression. The lessons are fun and deep, beautiful paced, and build on one another. Laura is generous with her knowledge and her heart." Ahbi Vernon - Psychologist and Mental Heath Therapist
