Friday Fave: iPhone 3GS

June 27, 2009

Happy Birthday to me! I actually celebrated my 26th several weeks ago, but my husband’s gift didn’t arrive until Monday. To be honest, I haven’t been able to put it down since…but at least I’ve been putting it to good use! I thought this would be a perfect topic for Friday Faves, so read on […]

I Heart Taylor Swift

June 25, 2009

Yes, me and every 12-18 year old girl out there. But let’s be honest: it’s hard not to. She’s talented (writes her own songs, plays the guitar, performs live) and wholesome, which are both rare in the world of popular music. Her music is fun and catchy, and it appeals to people of all ages […]

Today at Listen & Learn Plus!

June 25, 2009

These hot temperatures have got my brain cells acting a little sluggish, which sadly has affected my creativity this week :( So today at Listen & Learn Music Plus!, it’s Reader’s Choice. Subscribers are extended the invitation to email me with a song download, lead sheet, visual aide, or anything else they’ve seen at Listen […]

The Heat is On

June 24, 2009

This is how I’ve felt every day for the last week or so after spending even a few minutes outside. I tell you what, us Midwesterners get the worst of both winter and summer weather, and we’re experiencing the latter right about now. And to think – it’s only June! Luckily, I have the perfect […]

Summer has Arrived

June 22, 2009

Ahhh, summer! These three months are by far my favorite of the entire year, and I start counting down the days around, oh, February. I have so many wonderful summer memories: long, lazy days at the neighborhood pool with my friends, vacations with family, my beautiful August wedding last year…just to name a few. I’ve […]

Happy Father’s Day!

June 22, 2009

This is my dad. We spent Father’s Day watching the Cardinals game (not a whole lot has changed over the years, besides my hairstyle!) and then eating one of my dad’s specialties for dinner. Don’t worry, we offered to take him out, but he wanted my brother to have one last home-cooked meal before he […]

Today at Listen & Learn Plus!

June 19, 2009

Lots going on over there this beautiful Friday… 1) There’s a new “song of the week” download; this time it’s the “Friendly Words” tune. New downloads every Friday. 2) I created a new rhythm activity for my older students, with a music montage made up of many popular, recognizable songs. My three-minute masterpiece (hehe) is […]

Counting Time: Baseballs

June 19, 2009

There are a few things that really epitomize my favorite season (summer, of course) and one of them just happens to be baseball. I come from a long line of St. Louis Cardinals fans, and although I married a die-hard Chicago Cubs fan, we are able to live in harmony thanks to our mutual love […]

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly

June 17, 2009

I really enjoy blogging about the resources I use most often, especially books, and apparently, people enjoy reading about them! My two top posts in terms of hits (usually as a result of Google searches) are I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie and Is Your Mama a Llama?, which just happen to […]

New Challenges

June 16, 2009

I have to say, it feels great to be back in the groove of things. Vacations are always nice, but there come a time when you start to crave routine and normality. I was back in my element today as I worked with quite a few returning students, many of whom present new challenges. But […]

Back to Work

June 15, 2009

It’s been a great two weeks, but all good things must come to an end! Actually, I’m really REALLY excited for this week, as lessons and music therapy resume tomorrow. I have a full day ahead of me: Mondays are my longest, with 9 lessons, 2 individual MT sessions, and 1 group. Just thinking about […]

The Shakin’ Song

June 13, 2009

Yesterday as I was making plans for summer music therapy, I decided that I needed a new song to rock out to with shakers. Because you can never have enough of them, you know? I wanted something upbeat (obviously…we’re playing shakers here!) and fun; luckily this tune came pouring out. Shakers are for shakin’,Shakin’ right […]

Friday Fave: Twitter

June 12, 2009

It’s just about quitting time, but I wanted to get in one last post before I tear myself away from the computer for the weekend. I haven’t done a Friday Fave in a while, so I decided that today’s would be dedicated to a little website you may have heard of: Twitter. What’s not to […]
