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.

How To Teach Turn-Taking & Sharing

How to Teach Turn-Taking & Sharing | Listen & Learn Music

Taking turns is one of the most challenging tasks for students in my music therapy groups and music classes. Although it can also be a challenge for the music therapist or teacher to facilitate and manage sharing opportunities, there are many factors that can influence the success of songs that feature turn-taking.

And Then She Was 4

Mia Belle Turns 4 | Listen & Learn Music

It seems impossible, but my girl turned 4 this week! We celebrated by playing hooky from preschool, baking a homemade cake (with pink frosting, of course), and having our family over for pizza and presents.

Since she was born, Mia Belle has been my “Velcro baby” — stuck to me 24/7. And although she’s still a mama’s girl through and through, at 4 she is finally open to letting go of me in favor of her daddy, who takes her to ballet class and “Chikolay” (Chik-Fil-A) every week.

Spring into Summer Break

Spring Into Summer Break | Listen & Learn Music

The countdown to summer break is on! For many of my music therapy sessions and music classes, we only have a few weeks left before we’ll part ways for the summer. Although most therapists and teachers who work with school-aged children look forward to summer break, it can be a challenging time for our clients and students.

Endings are never easy, and although we might continue working with the same kiddos next year, there are still a lot of changes happening for them. Between schedule changes and weather changes, the prospect of new classrooms, new teachers, and classmates can be totally overwhelming.

As a music therapist, it’s easy for me to present these challenging topics and transitions in a fun and upbeat way. Below, I’ve featured two songs that I’ll be using to help my clients and students transition to summer break!

Creating Adaptations to Suit Your Needs

Creating Adaptations to Suit Your Needs | Listen & Learn Music

One thing that I love about working with lots of different kiddos is the opportunity to create adaptations! These allow me to use the same songs with many different students and clients, all of whom have unique strengths and needs. Being a music therapist has made me even more creative; I am constantly inspired not only by my kiddos, but also by their teachers, therapists and parents.

I have been approached countless times by those I work with to incorporate different themes or important topics into my music therapy sessions or music classes. Often times, I will use a song that I already know, and adapt it to accommodate other goals.

Mother’s Day the Kindergarten Way

Mother's Day the Kindergarten Way | Listen & Learn Music

My son’s school has the most precious tradition: a Mother’s Day Tea hosted by the two kindergarten classes. I heard about it last summer from another mom whose son had just finished kindergarten, and I’ve been looking forward to it ever since.

I have to say, this event definitely lived up to my expectations! Imagine 50 kindergarteners dressed in their Sunday best, serving their moms treats and performing songs about how much they love their moms…that’s what I got to experience last night :)

Visual Songs for Spring

May is in full swing, which means the school year is winding down, flowers are blooming all around us, and there’s a new monthly session plan in use! I just love the monthly session plans offered here at Listen & Learn Music. They always inspire my sessions, and I’m able to learn new repertoire to introduce to my clients and students so we can continue working towards their goals.

While I was browsing the May session plan, I noticed that several of the songs feature things we see in our world. Spring is an ideal time to discuss vision and what we see, especially with all of the spring colors popping up all around.

My Family in Photos

The Rambach Family | Listen & Learn Music

Over Easter, my family had the rare opportunity to all be together in one place at the same time. We met up in Denver, where my stepsister and her family hosted all 18 of us — including 8 kids ranging in age from 2 to 12!

We not only celebrated Easter, but also my mom’s 60th birthday. One of the things she really wanted was current photos of all of us, along with some of the entire family together.

Teaching Safety Skills Through Song

Teaching Safety Skills Through Song | Listen & Learn Music

Music is such a powerful and flexible tool, as we’ve witnessed firsthand both through our own life experiences and the work we do with children. Most of us have learned so many things through music…I mean, Schoolhouse Rock, anyone?!

I learned so much through music and I love seeing my clients and students learn things through music as well. Children latch onto music very quickly, so it is the perfect vehicle to teach important skills, like safety rules.

The May Session Plan is Here!

May Session Plan | Music Therapy & Music Classes | Listen & Learn Music

It seems like just yesterday, I was sharing songs about snow and cold weather…and now here we are, fully immersed in spring repertoire! Trust me, I am NOT complaining about that ;)

Creating my May session plans always feels a little bittersweet, because that means the school year is almost over. Of course, we’ll still see many of our students and clients over the summer, but those of you in the school setting know that a lot changes after the school year ends.
