The Institute for Music and Health (IMH) was founded by John Diamond, MD, in 1992 as a training and teaching center for his life’s work. Originally located in London, England, the Institute relocated to New York State in 1997 and is now located in Verbank, NY, in the heart of the Hudson Valley.

While our primary focus is the New York Tri-State area, we enjoy an international following, with students from the UK, South America, and Australia.
