Directionally Challenged | Listen & Learn Music | Rachel Rambach

Directionally challenged: that pretty much sums up how I’ve been feeling when it comes to this space lately.

I’m coming up on 10 years (!?!?) of writing here, and in that time span, a LOT has happened. I’ve grown from being a brand new professional to a relatively experienced music therapist, worked for 4 years as an employee and then left to expand my business, had two children, expanded my business some more, completely overhauled my workload…and those are just the BIG ones.

In the beginning, I didn’t overthink things. I just wrote about whatever I felt like, from my work, to my personal life, to the songs I was writing. But as my audience has grown, I’ve felt myself being tugged in many different directions…yet I’m afraid that going too far down one or more of those paths will alienate the people who are here for other reasons.

I love writing about life in general — motherhood, balancing work and family, my personal development journey. However, I know that many of you come here for resources — songs, music therapy applications, and private practice tips. Is it confusing that this site is a total mixed bag of both?

At the end of the day, this is my website and I have the ability to share whatever I feel like sharing. But I want this to be a place you enjoy coming, so can you do me a quick favor? Let me know what you’d like to see more of here. Drop a comment on this post, send me a DM on Instagram, or shoot me an email.

Every time I sit down to write a post here, I freeze, because I’m not sure if I’m heading in the “right” direction. I’m hoping I can change that, and take away any doubts I have about sharing in this space. Thank you for following along despite the fact that I’ve been all over the map, and for any feedback you’re willing to give.
