Listen & Learn Music
Rachel Rambach, MM, MT-BC
Creator & Owner
After almost 7 years managing every aspect of Listen & Learn Music, it’s time to grow this party of 1. I’m looking for a project manager to bring my creative vision to life and help even more children learn and grow through music. Read on for more about Listen & Learn Music and the qualities I’m looking for in a project manager.
An Overview of L&L
Listen & Learn Music was created in the fall of 2008 as a resource for music therapists, educators and parents. In addition to sharing original music, I also post song adaptations, musings on my work as a music therapist, and anecdotes from my personal life.
In 2009, I started Listen & Learn Plus, a premium subscription site. Members pay a monthly fee for access to 5+ years of archives along with new content delivered to their email inboxes regularly.
Listen & Learn Music offers a variety of content and products, including CMTE courses, custom-written songs, songbooks, individual song/lead sheet/instrumental track downloads, videos, and occasional guest posts. This year I introduced a new podcast, Guitars & Granola Bars: Music Therapists Talk Motherhood. Each week, I interview a different music therapist who is balancing her career with being a mom. The podcast is published here and available via iTunes and Stitcher.
Listen & Learn Music has a social media presence on several platforms, including Facebook (4,000+ fans) and Twitter (4,000+ followers). I have over 100 videos on YouTube (750+ subscribers; 400,000 views).
The Role of Project Manager
The role of project manager is quite broad and invites a wide range of skills. Potential candidates should be comfortable using a variety of technologies, including WordPress, notation software (such as Finale or Sibelius), Garageband, iMovie, Pages, Keynote, and social media platforms.
Responsibilities of the project manager include, but are not limited to:
