Music Therapy as a Career

July 29, 2009

One of the most fun aspects of writing this blog is the feedback I get from readers via email. I absolutely love hearing from you, whether you’re sharing a success story or asking a question. One of the questions that I get asked the most is “how do I become a music therapist?”. I receive […]

Ten Little Suns

July 29, 2009

I know I’m always complaining about our crazy midwest weather, but in these last few days, I haven’t had much to complain about. We had a beautiful weekend with temperatures in the low 80s, and of course, lots of sunshine. All of these sunny days got me thinking that it is time to do a […]

Music that Motivates

July 28, 2009

Believe it or not, I’m one of those crazy people that gets up and goes to the gym at 5 am. It sounds completely awful, I know; but I love getting a jump start on my day and having my workout finished before most people are even out of bed. Besides a really loud alarm […]

Friday Fave: My Grandma

July 24, 2009

Learning Left and Right

July 21, 2009

This concept is just plain hard. I struggled with this as a young child, and even today when giving someone directions, I have to stop and think before I decide whether it’s a left or right turn. Maybe this is due to the fact that I am left-handed; us lefties have it rough ;) It’s […]

Ten and Back

July 20, 2009

I know I just posted a counting song yesterday, but you can never have too many…right? This one focuses on counting to ten and back. Many of my students don’t have much difficulty with the first part, but most of them struggle when it comes to counting backwards. It’s time for a ten and back […]

Count by Five Jive

July 19, 2009

As I was going through my computer files this weekend – I’m running out of room on my hard drive and need to do some purging – I came across a folder of songs I wrote during my internship. I couldn’t believe I’d let these songs go unused for the past two years, so I […]

Friday Fave: GarageBand

July 17, 2009

As much as I write about my iPhone, Macbook, and other gadgets, you might think I work for Apple (or at least get paid to promote their products). Well neither is the case; I just happen to really, really love these pieces of technology. Even harder to believe is that up until two years ago, […]

On the Inside

July 16, 2009

Today’s post is one I think (or at least, I hope) you’ll like. I’ve been having so much fun experimenting with the video camera feature on my iPhone that I thought I’d put it to good use. So I’m going to take you on a tour of my home studio, where all of the Music […]

Cabasa is Boss

July 13, 2009

I’ve been neglecting this little beauty, otherwise known as the cabasa, since I purchased it back in early June. I really wanted to use it; I just never got around to it. Well I decided this week that it is time to put my newest instrument to good use, and I figured I may as […]

Friday Fave: Kickstarter

July 10, 2009

Hi friends. I’m feeling exceptionally happy today, and not just because it is Friday. Also, not just because I’m drinking a huge mug of delicious coffee. The real reason is that I have something exciting to write about today, and this could quite possibly be my favorite “Friday Fave” to date. I hope you’ll read […]
