Uplevel Your Musical Toolkit
After spending the last couple of weeks looking back on the history of Listen & Learn Music during the “L&L Turns 10” celebration, I couldn’t end this party without a little talk about the future around here. We’re officially into Year 11, and it’s off to the best possible start.
The second half of 2018 has been a huge turning point for Listen & Learn Music. In June, I welcomed fellow board-certified music therapist Cacia King to the team, and she has brought such a wealth of knowledge and experience with her.
Thanks to Cacia’s hard work, I’ve been able to launch two brand-new additions to the L&L toolkit: facilitation guides and a comprehensive song directory. These were the two pieces I felt were missing from my membership, Listen & Learn Plus, and I know they are going to improve the user experience exponentially.
Giving > Selling
There’s nothing I love more than sharing my songs and resources with others who can put them to good use, and I wish I could continue to give them away every day as I have during the “L&L Turns 10” celebration. But since this is a big part of my livelihood, the free model doesn’t work on an everyday basis ;)
The selling part of this job is my least favorite, as I would much rather be spending my time creating. Listen & Learn Plus feels like a good compromise, because once inside, members receive value that I feel far exceeds the price of admission.
And that’s why I’m wrapping up the party with a membership drive: one last opportunity for new members to join me and gain access to the entire collection before I close the doors until 2019.
After Friday, my focus will be on writing/recording and sharing musical resources with my membership community. Of course, I’ll be posting new songs and content here on the blog, but I want to give away the farm to those who invest in themselves, their students and clients, and their profession by joining Listen & Learn Plus.
If you participated in the “L&L Turns 10” celebration, then you already know about the breadth of resources available to members. But to fully understand just how you (and in turn, your students and clients) can benefit from joining, I encourage you to take a closer look below.
There are two membership options: Standard ($27/month) and VIP ($247/year). The main difference is the pricing structure AND the fact that VIP members have access to all current and future CMTE courses (currently a total of 18 CMTE credits valued at over $400).
After Friday, however, the VIP membership will no longer include CMTE course access; courses will only be available as additional purchases ($75 each).
As a Standard member, there is no minimum length of time required, though most members stay on for at least 18 months (and I even have a few who have been with me since I started Listen & Learn Plus back in 2009!).
All of the details are below.
And if you still have questions? Please don’t hesitate to reach me directly via email, firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m so excited about what this year has in store at Listen & Learn Music, and I want you to be a part of it, too.
