Friday Fave: Hand Bells

April 30, 2010

You know the feeling when you find a $20 bill in your coat pocket?  Well that is how I felt when I remembered that I had purchased this shiny little 8 Note Hand Bell Set several months ago!  My studio is chock full of instruments, props, and other goodies, but I store many of these […]

Today at Listen & Learn Plus!

April 30, 2010

I’m bringing back one of my songs for next month’s music therapy classes at The Hope Institute.  “What Do You Do?” will help my students match appropriate actions with different emotions and situations, and now it can help my readers’ students do so, as well.  The sheet music for this song is now available to […]

Get ‘Em While They’re Hot!

April 28, 2010

Not to mention, on sale!  Through Friday, when you purchase a songbook for $25, we will also include the supplemental CD (usually sold separately for $10) and free shipping. Also, a portion of all Listen & Learn songbook sales will be donated to the music therapy clubs of Colorado State University and Slippery Rock University […]

Bucklin’ Our Seatbelts

April 27, 2010

When I received a request for a seatbelt song via Facebook yesterday, I jumped at this songwriting opportunity.  I also asked myself: why hadn’t I thought of it already?  Buckling up is essential to our safety, and it’s a habit we learn at an early age.  Some kids just need a gentle reminder, and what […]

Sunday Singalong: April Showers

April 25, 2010

This week, I reached out to my readers via Facebook and Twitter, looking for “Sunday Singalong” song suggestions.  I received quite a few great requests, including “Shaky Fruit”, “The 3 R’s”, and “Maraca Rock”, but the one I chose was just too fitting to pass up. “April Showers” has been around for a long time […]

Autism & Alleluias

April 24, 2010

I hadn’t planned on writing a post today, but I just finished reading a book and wanted to share it with you.  In Autism & Alleluias, author Kathleen Deyer Bolduc gives us a glimpse into life with Joel, her son.  Joel, like so many of the children who touch my life and yours, is diagnosed […]

Friday Fave: MobileMe

April 23, 2010

I’d like to begin by apologizing to those of you who are PC users.  I am most decidedly a Mac person, if you hadn’t already gathered that from previous posts.  I do know that many of you (particularly my fellow music therapists – shout-out to Michelle Erfurt for recently joining us!) are also Mac users, […]

R’s for Earth Day

April 22, 2010

Happy Earth Day!  What are you doing today to celebrate our planet?  Every year, the students and staff at The Hope Institute head outside to plant trees on campus property, and luckily we’ll have a beautiful day for doing so.  I’ll also be singing the “Good Green Earth” song I shared in my latest Sunday […]

The Ice Age Song

April 20, 2010

If you’ve seen Ice Age, then you probably recognize these creatures as the main characters.  My song is unrelated to the film, but I loved this picture – and the animals just happen to be the right species!  “The Ice Age Song” is my attempt at consolidating general knowledge about this prehistoric era in a […]

Sunday Singalong: Good Green Earth

April 19, 2010

After a two-week hiatus, I’m back with a brand new video. It was such a beautiful spring day that I felt inspired to film this one outside, with the help of my wonderful husband. I’m thinking there will be lots more outdoor “Sunday Singalong” videos in the coming months! “Good Green Earth” was another iTunes […]

A Glee-ful Trip Down Memory Lane

April 17, 2010

Yesterday’s post about Glee! got me feeling pretty nostalgic about the “good old days” of high school show choir. So nostalgic, in fact, that I went over to my parents’ house and dug out my box of photo albums. I graduated from high school in 2001, the days before digital cameras became the norm, but […]

Friday Fave: Glee!

April 16, 2010

Who else is with me when I say that Glee just might be the most entertaining show on television right now? Judging from the response I received after posting about the return of Season 1 on my Facebook page the other night, I’m not alone in that sentiment. Hard-core fans of this show call themselves […]

Songbook Sale Extended

April 15, 2010

Last month, I announced a sale on the Listen & Learn songbook in celebration of regional music therapy conference season.  Thanks to several wonderful student music therapy associations, the songbooks were featured at three regional conferences.  The customer response has been fantastic, and for that reason, my publisher, Michelle Erfurt, and I have decided to […]

Today at Listen & Learn Plus!

April 13, 2010

Earlier today, I shared my goal to “finish creating sheet music for every last one of my 100+ Listen & Learn songs” with all of you.  Now I am asking my Listen & Learn Music Plus! subscribers to help keep me accountable on this goal by requesting the sheet music for a favorite Listen & […]

Recharged and Ready to Roll

April 13, 2010

A whole week has gone by since I last posted, but at least I have a good excuse: I was on vacation!  A much-needed one, to be honest, after a whirlwind winter and four long days in the recording studio.  Zach and I had a wonderful time in San Antonio, where we hit up the […]

Bella’s Blessings: A Humble Story of Providence

April 6, 2010

Last November, I had the opportunity to attend the AMTA National Conference in San Diego, California, where I met countless amazing music therapists.  One person, in particular, stood out to me; I kept seeing him everywhere I went – the exhibit hall, the sessions I attended, and so on.  He seemed like a fun and […]
