November 30, 2011

It’s time once again to give you the run-down of all of the wonderful Listen & Learn sponsors. I’m extremely proud to feature all of the following resources here on the blog — please take a few minutes to check them out below: I was thrilled to run into the owners of Mundana Music Therapy […]

Making Musical Gifts with Students

November 29, 2011

Now that Thanksgiving is over, I know what I’ll be hearing about from my students throughout the next couple of weeks: the next major holiday! Whether they celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah, giving and receiving gifts is an important topic for almost all of them. I do like to give my students a small gift before […]

Cyber Monday Music Sale!

November 28, 2011

While I’m not a fan of Black Friday, I must admit that I love Cyber Monday (its online counterpart). You’ve no doubt seen sales and deals popping up all over the internet, and Listen & Learn Music is no exception. Starting now through Friday, all of my digital downloads are 50% off. That includes individual […]

Sunday Singalong: A She & Him Cover

November 27, 2011

This was a super busy week for me! Between getting back on track after my trip to Atlanta, the holiday, and two big performances, I barely had time to breathe — let alone record a “Sunday Singalong” video :( But as I was downloading some video from last night’s gig, I had an idea: since […]

Today at Listen & Learn Plus!

November 26, 2011

I didn’t have the movie Christmas Vacation in mind when I wrote this song, but it seems to pop into my head each winter when I sing it with my students. Luckily, my song is much tamer than the movie (which is a yearly viewing tradition in my family). Growing up, Thanksgiving break — usually […]

Friday Fave: Not-So-Black Friday

November 25, 2011

Last year, my friend Katie and I ventured out at 4 a.m. on the day after Thanksgiving to participate in the absolute chaos that is Black Friday. I do have to admit that we had fun, and I did score some great deals on items for my studio, but I am not sad to have […]

So Much To Be Thankful For

November 24, 2011

Last night as I stood in front of a huge crowd of family, friends and strangers, doing one of the things I love most — singing and playing my heart out — I was reminded of just how much I have to be thankful for. Not everyone is lucky enough to do what they love […]

iTunes Match: Music in the Cloud

November 23, 2011

As I type this blog post, iTunes is currently uploading my music library into the cloud. Actually, it’s uploading the songs that aren’t available in the iTunes store — about half of my 8,741 song collection. With that much music in my library, it’s always been a struggle to decide which songs to sync with […]

#AMTA11: Conference Recap (With Pictures!)

November 22, 2011

This picture perfectly sums up #AMTA11: an amazing experience surrounded by amazing people. Jamie George, Michelle Erfurt, Stephanie Shehan, Michelle Kennemer, and Andrew Littlefield are just a few of the many music therapists with whom I had the honor of connecting in Atlanta. I would have to say that my 3rd American Music Therapy Association¬†national […]

Countdown to Thanksgiving

November 21, 2011

November is one of my very favorite months as far as music therapy goes, because I have all sorts of fun Thanksgiving-related songs to use with my students. And as excited as I am about the holiday, I’m a little bummed that it is here so soon — because that means I’ll have to stop […]

Sunday Singalong: The Sneezy Scarecrow

November 20, 2011

There are lots of reasons I love attending the national music therapy conference, but today I’m adding a new one to the list: the opportunity to record my first-ever guest edition of Sunday Singalong! Actually, it’s kind of funny that I had to come all the way to Atlanta to see Meryl Brown, who lives […]

Today at Listen & Learn Plus!

November 19, 2011

It’s been a super busy week at AMTA National Conference so far, and I haven’t even given all of my sessions yet. I had the pleasure of presenting with Michelle Erfurt and Kimberly Sena Moore yesterday morning, and then in the afternoon I served on a panel of awesome bloggers and social media gurus. Tomorrow […]

Friday Fave: Building An Online Presence

November 18, 2011

“We did it…you can, too!” That was the tagline for our session, Building an Online Presence, which we presented this morning at 7:30 am. And to our happy surprise, we had a room full of people who were so interested in learning from us that they braved the ridiculously early start time! Kimberly, Michelle and […]

Conference Has Officially Begun!

November 17, 2011

I’m writing this blog post while in a 4-hour committee meeting, which I’m justifying because of the fact that it’s the technology committee. I arrived in Atlanta yesterday afternoon and spent the rest of the day (and night) catching up with my music therapy colleagues. It’s funny how people I’ve met solely through social media […]

Up, Up and Away!

November 16, 2011

As I type this, I’m sitting in the airport waiting to board my plane to Atlanta. #AMTA11, baby! (That’s the American Music Therapy Association’s national conference, for those of you non-music therapists). I already wrote about the things I’ll be doing while in Atlanta, so I thought today I’d fill you in on how I […]

Georgia On My Mind

November 15, 2011

Holy cow, it’s conference time! Well, almost. 24 hours from now, I’ll be heading to the airport and then hopping a plane to Atlanta, the destination for the 2011 American Music Therapy Association national conference. I couldn’t possibly be more excited! This will be my third national conference — I attended my first back in […]
