Can I tell you how excited I am about this week!? We’re getting ready to host Music Therapy Connections’ annual Favorite Song Singalong, which is a free event for families with young children.
The Singalong, which will be held on both Tuesday morning and Wednesday evening, features a variety of our favorite songs (both original and traditional) that we’ve included in music classes over the last year.
One of the reasons I love this event so much is that it allows us to welcome in many new families from the community who haven’t attended our classes before. We also get to see our “regulars” — a big treat since we’ve been on break for the last month.
Add to that the opportunity to share my favorite songs, play our favorite instruments, and make music with lots of excited kiddos…well, it’s basically the recipe for an awesome time.
As I was working on the details of the event this past week, I thought, why not bring a similar concept to Listen & Learn Music? Except instead of sharing only MY favorite songs, I want to hear YOURS. Enter the Favorite Song Challenge.
The rules are incredibly simple: choose a favorite song (a personal fave, one you’ve written, a go-to in your music therapy sessions, the song you sing with your kids every day…it doesn’t matter) and share it with us via video in the Listen & Learn Facebook group.
Okay, so I totally get that choosing ONE favorite song is impossible, and not everyone is comfortable putting themselves on video. But since this is a challenge, I want to push you out of your comfort zone just a bit.
And there are incentives! Everyone who participates in the challenge will receive a download pack including 8 of my favorite songs (both original and adapted) for working with kids. AND one participant will be drawn at random to receive a one-year VIP membership to Listen & Learn Plus, valued at $247.
Are you up for the challenge? Yay! Enter your name and email address below to officially enter, and then you’ll receive an email from me with the next steps.
You have between now and this Sunday, July 2 to participate in the challenge. I’ll be drawing the random winner and sending out my favorite song download pack that night.
I can’t wait to hear your favorite song, and also share a few of mine as well! See you inside the challenge.
