The Ballad of Kitty

October 29, 2012

I’m pretty darn excited about this song. I mentioned last week that I get lots of my ideas from my mother-in-law, who is a special education teacher; well, the other person I can always count on for unique and creative song topics is Rene, who is an elementary teacher and frequent custom song customer. Her […]

Working Together

October 22, 2012

When I’m in need of new song topic ideas, my go-to person is my mother-in-law. She teaches in a special education classroom and incorporates music (mostly mine!) into as many lesson plans as possible. Since I’m in the middle of a huge project — I’ll share the details soon — my brain has been a […]

#AMTA12: Conference Recap (With Pictures)

October 19, 2012

Another national music therapy conference has come and gone! I spent the majority of last week in St. Charles, Illinois with over 1,600 music therapists, and am finally getting around to writing my yearly conference recap. And what would a recap be without plenty of photos? The photo above of Michelle, Kimberly and I — […]

Trick or Treat

October 15, 2012

With Halloween a mere two weeks away, I couldn’t resist writing a new song to add to my already quite full bag o’ spooky day tricks. While it is definitely NOT my most favorite day of the year, all the imagery related to Halloween makes it very easy to write about. Not to mention that […]

It’s Conference Time Again!

October 10, 2012

I’ve been up and at my desk since 4:45 am doing some last-minute work, which can only mean one thing: I’m leaving for conference today! In just a few hours (plus several lessons and music therapy sessions), I’ll be headed north to St. Charles, IL for the 2012 American Music Therapy Association’s national conference. And […]

Thank You

October 8, 2012

Last week, a music therapist sent a Facebook message inquiring if I had a song about saying “thank you”. Although I did write a song about saying please a few months back, I realized that I didn’t yet have a song about the OTHER magic words. First, I recommended that she check out Laurie Berkner’s […]

The Alphabet

October 1, 2012

Sometimes I really have to wrack my brain for new song topics…and other times, I find myself humming a kicked-up version of “The Alphabet Song” for which the lyrics come spilling out. That is exactly what happened last week as I was working on a completely unrelated project, so I immediately switched gears and took […]
