This is a guest post by my colleague and friend, board-certified music therapist Megan Resig. Megan is also a sponsor of Listen & Learn through her brand new project, Music Therapy Annex.
I’m THRILLED to be posting here at Listen and Learn today!
It’s uber exciting because Rachel’s blog was one of the first music therapy blogs I started reading. When I was back in grad school and frantically planning for some of my very first music therapy sessions, I remember scouring the web to find ideas.
I ran across Listen and Learn (and her extensive collection of songs, resources, and session ideas and realized that I had stumbled onto a goldmine! I was hooked — on this awesome music therapy online community, on the resources that were available — all of it! And now to be sharing my own resource here? Well…..life is just pretty awesome sometimes! :)
SO….let me tell you a little about my brand new project “The Music Therapy Annex”! As some of you may know, I’ve been co-authoring the blog “Mundana Music Therapy” with my amazing friend and colleague, Kimberly Thompson. As we started taking on various projects here in Portland, we realized that we needed to re-envision the purpose and message of Mundana. And…after taking an incredible creative retreat on the coast, I was inspired to create this new site — The Music Therapy Annex!
What is The Annex all about?
The Annex is focused completely on providing resources to music therapists and other creative arts professionals. Session ideas, songs, business resources, tips for enhancing your web presence, tutorials, etc. are all going to be a vital part of the site!
I also LOVE the connections and dialogue that are created when music therapists start sharing online and want to encourage those conversations on The Annex! We’ll be diving into some deep stuff related to music therapy best practices and I can’t wait to hear your perspectives!
I’m hoping that The Annex can be a place that inspires community, creativity, and empowerment for music therapists and related professionals, and I’m so excited to be embarking on this journey with YOU!
