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, email@example.com.
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, firstname.lastname@example.org.
For over 100 videos of my original songs, work with children, and performances, visit my YouTube channel here.

This is the final episode in our current season, during which I’ve been so lucky to have Jaime Lawrence as a co-host. I hope you’ve enjoyed her added perspective here on the podcast just as much as I have!
Since we’re making our way towards the end of 2018, Jaime and I thought it would be fun to share our favorite accomplishments of the year, both personally and professionally. This was such a fun episode to record, and it made me excited to think about all that I want to accomplish in 2019.
Around this time of year, the holiday decorations come out, everyone is filled with cheer, and our clients and students feel it! They’re excited for snow days, gifts, holiday traditions, and all the beautiful lights.
Sometimes, that can make for chaotic music therapy sessions or classes. It can be overwhelming to see this change in our clients and students, and we may need to modify our session plans to address their needs.
It’s been an eventful month at Music Therapy Connections! My co-owner Katey and I started a new season of the Creative Business Breakdown, went on our inaugural “boss vacation” to Clearwater Beach, and launched a brand new program for music therapy business owners. Whew…what a whirlwind!
There are quite a few Listen & Learn Music songs about Thanksgiving, and several of those Thanksgiving themed songs address educational skills. Talk about doing double duty: songs that are educational and holiday-themed? That’s what music therapists’ dreams are made of!
Today was a first on several different levels. First of all, it was Parker’s first official snow day! And second, it was the first time in my life I’ve ever experienced a snow day…in November. Definitely didn’t see that coming!
When you work with little kiddos, it’s bound to happen. Eventually, you will catch a cold *cue dramatic music*. Last week, I finally caught my first cold of the year and ended up losing my voice for several days.
I’m one of those people who can’t help but start getting into the holiday spirit the minute Halloween ends. While I’ve managed to hold off putting up my Christmas tree, I was more than happy to have a reason to pull out my holiday repertoire.
For the first time in 9 years, I’m not spending the first weeks of November preparing to attend the AMTA national music therapy conference. I’ve been to every national conference since my first in 2009, and this would have been my 10th, but I made the very intentional decision to reach that milestone next year, instead.
Thanksgiving is one of the most delicious and humbling holidays of the year. However, when it comes to my students and clients, many of them are hesitant about the food and have a difficult time understanding what it means to be thankful.
For children with special needs, many of the aspects of Thanksgiving are challenging: eating so many different foods, often with lots of unfamiliar family members, a change from their typical routine, and being thankful (what does that even mean?!?) can be overwhelming.
Last year, we started entertaining the idea of a Halloween-themed Disney cruise thanks to my son Parker’s love for this particular holiday, and this fall, we made it happen. The best part was that the entire trip was a complete surprise to the kids!
