The holiday season, as just about everything else in 2020, does not feel the same this year. For my family, there are no holiday parties, school Christmas programs, visits to Santa, or even celebrations with grandparents and extended family. But we are doing everything we can to make the most of it.
Same goes for my studio and private practice, Music Therapy Connections. I always look forward to this time of year, because it’s when we host our big winter recital, team holiday gathering, and my favorite of all, our Christmas-themed music classes. None of those things are happening this month — at least, in the typical way.
While I won’t get to welcome dozens of families into the studio to make music with me and sing our holiday faves, I can invite them to join me on Zoom and do those things. The one perk of meeting virtually instead of in person is that I can invite LOTS more people, no matter where they live, to join in the celebration!
On Tuesday, December 22, I’ll be holding a livestream music class via Zoom at 9:30 am CT. This class is designed for children ages 0-5 and their families, and it will feature singing, instrument-playing, and movement all with a holiday theme.
Registration also includes a song packet containing the lyrics & chords, PLUS the mp3 recordings of the songs from class and a full-length video, so you can still enjoy the class even if you can’t make it to the livestream.
If you are a music therapist or educator, feel free to participate in and use these classes (and all related materials) as inspiration for your own work. You have my permission to use any and all Listen & Learn songs in your live + recorded classes, sessions, and videos.
All of the details and registration are right here! I would love to see you next Tuesday, December 22, and bring a little extra festivity to your week. You’ll be bringing a whole lot of festivity to mine by joining me, that’s for sure!
