Rachel Rambach, MM, MT-BC
Welcome! My name is Rachel Rambach. Here are a few words and phrases I might use to describe myself: mom, music therapist, business owner, singer, songwriter, and educator. So what happens when all of these aspects of my life converge? Well, you’re looking at it!
This is where all of my interests and skills are combined for one purpose: to make peoples’ lives better through music. Whether it’s through my original songs, serving my community through my business, or singing with my children, this is my favorite place to share my musical endeavors. Thank you for visiting, and I hope to get to know you better.
In addition to my music therapy work, I also perform frequently in local venues and at both public and private events. To inquire about booking opportunities, please contact me via email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whether it is a school performance, outreach event, or fundraiser, I love making music with children in the community! To inquire about booking opportunities, please contact me via email, email@example.com.

During my first year as a music therapist, I was just trying to get my footing (can you relate?). Whenever I felt like I didn’t know what to do or was stuck, I would start hunting for resources, songs, or interventions…and I always came back to Listen & Learn Music.
This blog post is by Cacia King, MT-BC, a board-certified music therapist who joined the team here at Listen & Learn Music after years as a reader and Listen & Learn Plus member. Thank you, Cacia, for sharing how you have benefited from L&L resources in your first few years of practice!
I have a clear memory of the first time a colleague told me about Listen & Learn Music. I was about to take on one of my first school contracts and would be working with lots of small children. I had a pretty solid repertoire, but I wanted more resources, more songs, and especially, a different spin on the same goals.
Pumpkin spice lattes, cozy sweaters, apple picking, the crisp air and the crunchy leaves……yup, I’m dreaming of fall! Here in New England I can already feel the season changing, which means fall is coming soon and it’s time to prepare some goal-oriented fall-themed songs.
We talk pretty often on the podcast about running our own businesses and the challenges associated with it. One of the BIGGEST challenges is being a boss — deciding when the time is right to grow our team, conducting interviews, completing the hiring process, and then managing a team.
One of the most inspiring aspects of working with children is witnessing their learning and growth.

This week’s topic was a no-brainer for two moms who also work with school-aged children. It’s back to school time, which comes with a whole lot of excitement, overwhelm, challenges, and planning.
The day we’ve been anticipating all summer — some more eagerly than others — finally arrived: my son Parker’s first day of kindergarten.
This past week as we’ve been preparing for my son’s first day of kindergarten, I can’t help but think about how the past 5 years have flown by so quickly. I remember scrolling through Facebook and seeing all the first day of school photos, feeling sad for those parents while squeezing my own baby tight.
I never fully appreciated the proverb “necessity is the mother of invention” until I became a business owner. It didn’t take long to realize that there are busy seasons in a private practice and teaching studio, and then there are slow seasons. Very, very slow seasons.
