Home Recording Studio Essentials

July 29, 2010

Two years ago, my “home recording studio” consisted of two things: a 13″ Macbook and a $12 Logitech microphone.  Though it wasn’t fancy, it did the job, considering I was simply recording music therapy songs for the students at my school.  But the more songs I wrote and the more interested I became in home […]

Kids With Cats: This Song is For You

July 28, 2010

Writing a song about dogs came quite naturally to me, since I’m a dog owner and have always considered myself to be a “dog person”.  But I have nothing against cats (that’s my mom’s cat, Izzy, in the picture) and since many of you let me know that you’d like a feline version of the […]

Time to Sing Hello Hits the Airwaves

July 26, 2010

Yesterday I got into my car, headed to the grocery store, when I heard a familiar voice on the radio. It was mine! The interview that I had recorded earlier in the week aired throughout the weekend on 5 different local stations, and I got lucky enough to catch it on my favorite one (WDBR, […]

Sunday Singalong: You Are My Sunshine

July 25, 2010

Happy Sunday! Singing this song (in any one of its many forms) always puts a smile on my face. Good thing, because I sing the calendar version in almost every music therapy session, both at school and in my private practice. People always ask me if I get tired of singing the same songs over […]

Friday Fave: A New Officemate

July 23, 2010

Last Tuesday was a sad day in the Music Therapy Connections office/studio.  It was the day I laid to rest a sturdy old workhorse, my HP DeskJet 940c printer.  I’ve had this printer since my first day of college (all the way back in 2001), and it has sat on 4 different desks in 4 […]


July 21, 2010

Many of you already know this, but Listen & Learn isn’t my only website. I also have a personal website and blog where I post cover songs, originals, and general musings. I don’t update it all that often, but I did yesterday and thought I’d share the link with you. As much as I love […]

A Sweet Singable Story

July 20, 2010

Last month’s inaugural Singable Story garnered quite a few comments and requests for more singable story ideas, so I’m excited to be back with another one today.  Good Night, Sweet Butterflies, written by Dawn Bentley, combines sensory input through touch (the butterflies on each page are 3-D and glittery, no less), sight (bright colors spill […]

Sunday Singalong: Little Fishes

July 18, 2010

It’s true, I am wearing my swimsuit underneath my clothes and not one stitch of makeup, but I had a window of opportunity (read: absent puppy and hubby) in which to record this video, and I took advantage of it! If you haven’t checked out the music of Genevieve Jereb, you really should.  I just […]

Friday Fave: The 7 Link Challenge

July 16, 2010

Earlier this week, Darren Rowse of ProBlogger (an awesome resource for anyone who blogs) posed a challenge: publish a list of 7 links to posts that you and others have written that respond to 7 specific categories. Your first post A post you enjoyed writing the most A post which had a great discussion A […]

D-O-G, My D-O-G

July 14, 2010

That’s my D-O-G, Sadie, but believe it or not, she actually wasn’t the inspiration for this song!  Just yesterday during my last group music therapy session at The Autism Program, one of my students asked me if I had a dog.  I saw this as an opportunity to start a conversation, so I used an […]

Release Party Recap

July 13, 2010

I work with students of all ages and abilities both in my studio and at school, so to have many of them gathered in one place, all participating and having fun, was a joy to see. The CD Release Party was a huge success, based on the feedback I’ve received from parents as well as […]

Sunday Singalong: CD Release Edition

July 11, 2010

Today is a big day! I’m throwing a CD release party this afternoon, because what better way to celebrate than surrounded by my friends, family, coworkers, and students? I’m kicking off the celebration with an interactive performance of the songs from the album, followed by refreshments and merriment. And of course, I’ll have plenty of […]

Friday Fave: My First Review!

July 9, 2010

When I mailed out the preorders of my new CD on Tuesday, I expected for them to arrive either today or tomorrow, which is the official release day.  So I was incredibly surprised when I received an email from one preorder customer last night, telling me that her copy had arrived on Thursday! It is […]
