Jim Oshinsky, Ph.D., was the first honorary graduate of Music for People's training program, based on his work shaping the Leadership aspects of the program and documenting the history of Music for People in his writings. He met David Darling when Jim was working with Susan Osborn and Paul Winter in the 1980's, producing improvisation and healing retreats. Over the years, Jim has helped compile and author much of the curriculum materials used in Music for People's teacher training programs, including the book Return to Child, Music for People's guide to improvisation and group leading. He continues to serve the program as consultant, and teaches classes in guitar, voice, and the dynamics of group leading.

Call him if you have any questions about how to complete the homeplay activities that go along with the MfP training programs, or for coaching about how to lead your own gatherings. Jim is available for private consultations and sessions on voice and instruments, as well as for consultations on aspects of workshop leading and production. Outside of MfP, Jim is a psychologist, poet, songwriter and guitarist. He is also active in the area of journaling and poetry as tools for personal expression and is the author of a book on journaling for teens.
