Apples & Bananas

August 25, 2015

TweetIt’s no secret that most of the songs I use in music therapy sessions, groups and classes are originals that I’ve written myself. I’m a firm believer in tailoring materials to my individual clients and groups of students, which is much more easily done when I’m composing the lyrics and melodies. But there is certainly […]

{Mama Moment} One More Week

August 24, 2015

Tweet The longest shortest time, indeed. When I think back to the end of May when Mia was born, it seems like just yesterday; this summer flew by in the blink of an eye. But some days felt absolutely interminable, especially at the beginning when I was just getting the hang of caring for a […]

Before and After

August 23, 2015

Tweet When Katey and I first stepped into 1234 Centre West Drive, we knew we had found just what we were looking for. Yes, we were surrounded by a sea of purple, but we saw past the cosmetic misfortune because the bones of the building were good. Actually, they were great. Though the entire place […]

{Guitars & Granola Bars} Episode 31

August 21, 2015

Tweet I had a hard enough time returning to work after my maternity leave to work with children in my private practice, so I can only imagine just how difficult it was for Lauren Servos to not only return to work, but spend her days treating CRITICALLY ILL infants the same age as her daughter. […]

Hum a Tune

August 17, 2015

Tweet I’ve seen a lot of funny things in my years of working with kids, but one of the funniest has to be watching a child learn to play the kazoo. For some, it clicks right away, but most of the time there is a learning curve involved. My two-year-old fell into the latter category; […]

{Guitars & Granola Bars} Episode 30

August 14, 2015

Tweet There are very few music therapists who DON’T know JoAnn Jordan. She’s one of those people who goes out of her way to hello at conference, celebrates your good news on Facebook, and retweets you on Twitter. I always love talking with JoAnn because not only is she an innovative music therapist, but she […]

Five Little Ducklings

August 13, 2015

Tweet Earlier this week as I organized all of my singable stories on the bookshelves of our brand new studio, I took note of my favorites and those that have been most effective in classes and music therapy sessions. Five Little Ducklings ranks in the top 10, although if you ask my son Parker, he […]

{Guitars & Granola Bars} Episode 29

August 7, 2015

Tweet I’ve heard some pretty fascinating stories on this podcast, but Alana’s might just take the cake. I’m sure you’ll be just as riveted as I was when you hear all that Alana has been through — including the devastating Hurricane Katrina in 2005 — and overcome to get to where she is today. Alana’s […]

All Signs Point to Music Therapy Connections

August 5, 2015

Tweet We signed the least on our new building back in May, but it wasn’t until I spotted this sign from the street that it hit me: Music Therapy Connections has a new home! What started as a solo music therapist traveling to clients’ homes now has 2,300 square feet of dedicated space and a […]

{Guitars & Granola Bars} Episode 28

July 31, 2015

Tweet Ever since starting this podcast, I had plans to eventually record an episode where I would share my own story as it relates to music therapy and motherhood. But I put it off until now, knowing that the story would evolve once my daughter was born. I finally went for it this week, and […]

{Guitars & Granola Bars} Episode 27

July 24, 2015

Tweet Jennifer Hezoucky’s story is different from almost all of the guests I’ve featured on the podcast thus far. I don’t want to give any spoilers aside from the short synopsis below, so you’ll have to listen to find out why I was so intrigued by what she shares in the episode (you will be […]

One Thing at a Time

July 18, 2015

Tweet Last Sunday night, I felt completely overwhelmed thinking about the week ahead. We’re in the midst of having our new building renovated, and we had yet to find a painter after my regular painter broke his foot. We also needed to choose carpeting, finalize the design for our building signs, and tie up some […]

{Guitars & Granola Bars} Episode 26

July 17, 2015

Tweet Fun fact: Michelle Erfurt is the very first music therapist friend I made online. The funny thing is that it wasn’t through Facebook or Twitter; we actually met via the email listserv (old school!). She contacted me right after I launched Listen & Learn Music and shared a link on the listserv way back […]

It’s a Midsummer Mega-Sale!

July 15, 2015

Tweet Where has this summer gone? It is flying by wayyyy too quickly, which is a little bittersweet since I’m currently on maternity leave (well, kind of). This weekend, we’re throwing a Midsummer Music Celebration for our students, clients, friends and family, and that inspired me to celebrate midsummer here at Listen & Learn, as […]

{Guitars & Granola Bars} Episode 25

July 10, 2015

Tweet 25 episodes feels like a big milestone, so I was celebrating a little as I hit “publish” this week. How is it possible that an entire half of a year has passed since I came up with the idea for this podcast and recorded the first episode? Slow down, life. This week’s guest doesn’t […]

You’re Invited…

July 9, 2015

Tweet It’s a BIG SUMMER for Music Therapy Connections, my private practice and teaching studio. Not only are we moving to our own building next month, but we are also welcoming new members to our team. “Expansion” is the theme of 2015 — both personally and professionally! We want to kick off all these exciting […]
