Old Town School Folk MusicAs secretary and program chair of the Illinois Association for Music Therapy, my duties include planning continuing education events twice per year.  This winter, I’ve had the pleasure of working with faculty at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, where we will hold our upcoming five-hour CMTE, Multicultural Music for Music Therapists, next month.

If you’re a music therapist in Illinois, please mark your calendars for Sunday, February 13th.  OTS faculty will present the following workshops to music therapists in attendance:

  • Children’s Songs En Español
  • Blues Guitar
  • Middle Eastern Music

Concurrently, members of IAMT will present informative workshops to attendees from OTS.  Lunch will be provided to music therapists (included in registration fee).  At the end of the day, both groups will meet for socializing and maybe even some jamming :)

This promises to be a wonderful event (and I’m not just saying that because I planned it!).  If you’re interested and able to attend, you can download the full program and registration info below:

CMTE: Multicultural Music for Music Therapists

Early-bird registration (which includes a discounted cost) must be postmarked by February 1st.  I sincerely hope you’ll join us.  Oh, and please spread the word.  See you in the windy city!
