Certification in gender affirming voicework

The term "gender affirming voicework" refers to a very specific set of ideas developed by Maevon Gumble in relation to gender and voice-focused music therapy, and it is in the process of being trademarked.


A formal training process for certification in gender affirming voicework is anticipated to be finalized by the end of 2022 at the very latest and is being developed by Maevon Gumble, Braedyn Inmon, and K Schachner. We intend for this to be as financially accessible as possible for those interested in the work.


This training will be available for board-certified music therapists and will involve:

  • learning about the foundations and core concepts of gender affirming voicework,
  • engaging in triad work alongside peers to explore your relationship with and mechanics of your own voice,
  • and engaging in supervised clinical work. 

It is requested that you do not use the term "gender affirming voicework" to describe your music therapy work until you have completed this training.
