“Back to School” Roundup

August 22, 2014

Tweet I’m not sure how it happened, but yet another summer has slipped away and a new school year has begun. My Facebook newsfeed is full of back-to-school photos (which I love, just to be clear…as long as I don’t have to think about my child going off to school anytime soon!) and we’re gearing […]

Welcome to the World

August 19, 2014

Tweet Fun fact: It was my mom, not me, who wrote the first song dedicated to my son Parker after he was born last summer. She would sing it to him every time she came over to see him, and now we all sing “The Parker Song”. It took a couple of months for the […]

Coming Soon: A New Online CMTE Course

August 18, 2014

Tweet I’m knee-deep in content creation for my new CMTE course — Early Childhood Programs: Create, Market, Make Music! — and I can’t wait to share it with you in a few weeks. Creating a new group, class or program can be overwhelming, but it can also be extremely rewarding — especially when the end […]

Be a Part of the Baby Band

August 14, 2014

Tweet Let’s be honest: it doesn’t get much cuter than a whole bunch of babies playing instruments together. I’ve been a “baby bandleader” for many years now, teaching early childhood music classes, so it’s a little ridiculous that it took me this long to write a song all about my favorite kind of band. “Baby […]

My Last Week Working From Home

August 13, 2014

Tweet This summer, I’ve had lots of people ask me what I do. When I explain that I’m a music therapist with my own private practice/teaching studio, they almost always comment how incredibly lucky I am to work from home. Every time that happens, I think to myself, “Yes, I am incredibly lucky and it […]

If I Were a Music Therapy Student NOW…

August 11, 2014

Tweet If only we could go back in time and do certain things over again, knowing what we know now. Better yet, having the resources we have now. The years I spent in graduate school studying music therapy (2004-2006) seem like ages ago; SO much has changed in our field, in technology, and the world […]

Civil Wars, I’ll Miss You

August 9, 2014

Tweet I fell in love with The Civil Wars’ music the first time I heard their song “20 Years” randomly on Pandora in 2011. I couldn’t get enough of their album Barton Hollow, and my bandmate and I added several of the songs to our set list. When they posted on their Facebook page last […]

Summertime Tune

August 5, 2014

Tweet I’ve been writing this blog for almost 6 years now, and blabbing on and on about how much I love summer for just as long. So August is always a little bittersweet, because that means my favorite season is almost over and fall will be here in a blink. But this year instead of […]

Music Therapy Connections is Moving!

July 28, 2014

Tweet Well, this is a bittersweet post if I’ve ever written one. After 5+ wonderful years providing music therapy services and lessons in my home studio, Music Therapy Connections is moving out. And while I’ll miss the non-existent commute and overall convenience of working at home, the pros of our new location far outweigh the […]

Summer Projects

July 23, 2014

TweetI’ve always been a sucker for a full plate, both in the literal sense (ha!) and when it comes to work-related projects. I wasn’t sure if that would be the case this summer, since last year at this time I was on maternity leave and work was not a high priority. But it turns out […]

{Mama Moment} Being the Parent at Music Class

July 16, 2014

Tweet My son Parker has been attending my early childhood music classes since he was just six months old, which I’ve written about here before. Since I’ve always been the teacher, either my mom or my husband has been with him during class. But this month, I’ve had the opportunity to be “the parent” while […]

Around the World We Go

July 15, 2014

Tweet Love, love, loooove this singable story! Big thanks to my teacher friend (and huge supporter of Listen & Learn) Rene for sending me a copy of this book, which I’d previously never heard of. I’ve been getting lots of use out of it lately, and hopefully you can too. Around the World We Go […]

Let’s All Wave Hello

July 8, 2014

Tweet One of the things I love most about offering classes is that when I plan them, I end up writing a bunch of new songs. My current early childhood class was no exception; I wrote no fewer than 10 new songs for it! So over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing them with […]

{Mama Moment} Coming Full Circle

June 26, 2014

Tweet The following is a guest post by Jennifer Gossett, MT-BC, NICU MT. Jennifer is a Board-Certified Music Therapist based in Charleston, SC. She ventured into the field of music therapy after a 15-year career as a band director in public and private schools, and opened her private practice, Noteworthy Music Therapy, in 2012. Jennifer […]

We All Will Sing Together

June 24, 2014

Tweet I’ve been on a bit of a summer songwriting hiatus this month, so it was nice to sit down and spend some time writing and recording over the weekend. My baby & toddler class starts next week, so I have a lot of work to do! This particular song is actually one that I […]

I’ll See You in the Morning

June 19, 2014

Tweet Turning books into singable stories has been a little hobby of mine since my first music therapy practicum in grad school (almost 10 years ago!). I’ve used dozens and dozens of them in my work as a therapist, and now they are serving double duty in my newest career as a mom. Parker was […]
