The Magic Word

February 27, 2012

We all heard it as children, and most likely even say it now: “What’s the magic word?” It’s probably the most frequently used method for reminding a child to say “please” — so I wrote a song about it. The idea for The Magic Word came to me as I was brainstorming language and social […]

Friday Fave: Online CMTEs at MT Pro!

February 24, 2012

A little over two years ago, Michelle Erfurt, Kimberly Sena Moore and I launched The Music Therapy Round Table podcast. Then last August, we expanded by adding our membership site, Music Therapy Pro. And since doing so, we’ve been secretly plotting yet another addition: online CMTE courses! I became a CBMT-approved provider (#P-103) last spring […]

Numbers With a “1”

February 20, 2012

I’ve most definitely written my fair share of songs about numbers. And while it’s not my FAVORITE topic in the world, I do have a bit of a soft spot for it…after all, I was president of the math club in high school (a fact my family will never let me live down). So when […]

Friday Fave: Mechanical Licenses Made Easy

February 17, 2012

Earlier this week, my newsletter went out and included a free song download. (They all do….have you subscribed yet?) Several of the emails I received in response prompted this week’s post on a topic I’ve written about before at Listen & Learn Plus, but never here: mechanical licenses. The emails I received asked if  the […]

Love, Love, Love (My Family)

February 13, 2012

Choosing this week’s song topic was sort of a no-brainer, thanks to a certain holiday coming up tomorrow. I’ve written plenty of songs about love, including The Feelings in My Heart (follow the link to get a free visual aide download) and You Are Loved. But this time I wanted to focus on a very […]

Friday Fave: The Best Lyrics Site on the Web

February 10, 2012

Like many other music therapists, teachers, and musicians, I spend a lot of time making song sheets for my students and myself. While in some cases I’ll need the actual sheet music for a song (in which case I head over to MusicNotes), sometimes I just need the lyrics. If you do a Google search […]

Student Spotlight: Cydney Sings “At Last”

February 9, 2012

When Cydney returned to lessons after winter break, she informed me that her cousin had asked her to sing several songs at her wedding reception. (If I was Cydney’s cousin, I would have done the same…she has an amazing voice!) Her cousin had picked out ‘The Only Exception” by Paramore, “Rolling in the Deep” by […]

I Like to Clap to the Beat

February 6, 2012

This weekend as I was brainstorming ideas for today’s new song, I thought back to a lesson I helped a teacher at my former job teach to his students. The topic was clapping at appropriate times, which may seem very basic to most, but for students with developmental and behavioral issues, it wasn’t so simple. […]

Friday Fave: Smash

February 3, 2012

I’m a sucker for Broadway musicals, so it comes as no surprise that I’m a fan of a show all about the behind-the-scenes drama of creating and producing a Broadway musical. Katharine McPhee, who was an American Idol finalist back when I still watched that show, stars as an actress auditioning for the lead role […]
