What does August have in store for you? Are you continuing virtual services, preparing to return to in-person classrooms and groups, or a combination of both? As for me, I am wrapping up my summer session of virtual music classes, getting ready to reopen Music Therapy Connections for in-person 1:1 services next week, and waiting with bated breath to hear what school will look like for my children.
I still don’t know when my groups and classes will go back to being held in-person, but I’m guessing that won’t happen anytime soon. That is why I’m continuing to create session plans that are flexible and can work both virtually and in physical proximity.
As has been the case since March, all of my songs, recordings and resources are fair game for use and adaptation as you provide services, and hopefully the August session plan will be helpful as we head into the next month.
For the month of August, I’m incorporating rhythm sticks, shakers, scarves, and plenty of opportunities for addressing impulse control, color identification, following directions, and much more.
The August session plan includes 10 goal-based songs (mp3, instrumental track, lyrics/chords) along with a facilitation guide for each song, which will allow you to implement a cohesive 30-45 minute music experience. Grab it for yourself for just $10.
