Listen & Learn provides unique, fun, and goal-oriented music that can be used in so many different settings! At Music Therapy Connections in Springfield, we offer Listen & Learn classes that specifically utilizes this material.
I have had the privilege of teaching some of these classes each week. I primarily teach Listen & Learn for Little Ones, which is for children ages 0-3 and their caregivers. I also teach Listen & Learn a Little More, which is for children ages 3-5. Our classes typically run in four-week sessions. Each week during this period makes use of the same material because repetition is so valuable!
These are the words I wish someone would have told me early on in my music therapy career when I started a private practice in addition to my full-time direct service job, taking on so many clients that I ended up working 50+ clinical hours per week.
Hi everyone! My name is Emma Kovachevich and I am so excited to start writing here at Listen & Learn Music each week.
I have enjoyed using the Listen & Learn material in my music therapy sessions as well as leading Listen & Learn classes at Music Therapy Connections. It is wonderful to see people of all ages benefit and learn from these Rachel Rambach originals and adaptations.
Some of you may be thinking, “Who are you?” Well, here’s a little more information about me.
Working with children feels just a little more fun and magical during the month of December, do you agree? The anticipation of the holiday season seems to put everyone into a cheerful mood, and I love all the repertoire that goes along with this time of year.
Admittedly, I am one of those people who starts listening to holiday music in early November, so it’s hard for me to wait until after Thanksgiving to bring out many of the songs included in next month’s session plan.
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays of the year! I love being able to reflect on my life and really appreciate all that I have. I also love being able to discuss this with the children that I make music with. I believe that even young children can begin to understand what it means to be thankful.
Being thankful and giving thanks are HARD concepts. It usually takes a bit of explaining so that my clients and students can truly understand the meaning of both. Incorporating a song like “Give Thanks” into my November music therapy sessions is the perfect way to begin a discussion about all of the things we can be thankful for.
Welcome! I’m Rachel Rambach, board-certified music therapist and creator of Listen & Learn Music — educational songs and musical materials for children. I love sharing my work with you, along with my behind-the-scenes creative process, adventures in business ownership, and life as a mom of two little ones.
