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.

Performances

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, rachel@rachelrambach.com.

Sitting Out #AMTA18 National Conference | Listen & Learn Music | Rachel Rambach

Preparing for Thanksgiving Through Song

Thanksgiving Songs for Children | Listen & Learn Music

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.

Celebrating the Little Victories

Celebrating the Little Victories | Listen & Learn Music

When I was working on my undergraduate degree, one of my music therapy supervisors said something to the effect of “We’ve got to celebrate the little victories, and sometimes it takes a long time to achieve them”. As a young music therapy student, I thought I understood what my supervisor meant, but looking back, I realize I didn’t completely get it.

GGB Episode 76: All Things Halloween! | Guitars & Granola Bars Podcast | Rachel Rambach

Halloween is coming, and we are ready! So of course we had to dedicate an entire episode to how we celebrate this special day at home — including decorations, our family’s costumes, and favorite traditions — and at work — the songs we sing, how we integrate Halloween into our groups and sessions, and ways we get festive in our workplaces.

Let’s Get Visual, Visual (Aides!)

Visual Aides for Music Therapy

Visual aides are an essential part of my music therapy practice, and I use them every day. I wouldn’t have believed you if you had told me five years ago that I would spend my nights with my laminator (yes, of course I have my own laminator) making endless visual aides, but I would seriously be lost without them!
