In Episode 2 of the Guitars & Granola Bars podcast, I’m chatting with music therapist Tamara Leszner-Rovet. Tamara talks about maternity leave in Canada, how she was able to keep her private practice going in the months following her son’s birth, shares a super cool iPad app she uses in her adapted lessons, and much more.
