Fabulous, yes…but also extremely busy! So far, my 4th year at The Hope Institute is proving to be full of adventures. Classes have only been in session for five days, and we’re already planning a big student performance, several speaking engagements where I’ll be representing Hope, and the brand new music therapy internship program is well underway.
An entire summer has passed since I’ve seen my students, and it has been so much fun to see the growth and progression that has taken place in the last three months. I love walking into a classroom and having so many smiling faces anxiously waiting new songs and music therapy activities.
How did your first week go? A lovely balance of chaos and excitement? Yep, same here. As much as I’ve enjoyed these past five days, I am certainly ready for the weekend :) I need some time to recharge my batteries and prepare for another week, especially since my private practice reopens for the fall session on Monday.
Add 30+ students to an already hectic school week, and what do you get? One very worn out music therapist. But trust me, I’m not complaining — in fact, I can’t wait. Bring it on!
