It’s called the Rap Pack for Teens.

This resource provides ideas for how to use raps to work on a variety of goals during your teen music therapy sessions.

The Why behind the Rap Pack.

I’m going on my tenth year working with teens with autism and other special needs. I absolutely love working with this population. But, I have to be honest – I did not always feel this way.

Full disclosure: when I first started providing music therapy sessions for teens, I was extremely nervous and unsure of myself.

I was great at coming up with musical experiences that were goal-oriented. I had that down. But when it came to creating experiences that were goal-oriented AND engaging for teens that seemed “too cool for school,” I had a bit more trouble.

So, in my first year as a music therapist working with teens, I made it my mission to create and test out all different types of musical experiences. I wanted to find the ones that were the most successful in meeting targeted goals AND were most successful in terms of client feedback.

There is no better feeling than when a teen client says “Can we do that next week? That was so cool.” Am I right?

My sole purpose in creating the Tuneful Teens E-Book series and the Rap Pack is to share with you the musical experiences that have been most successful with my teen clients. The experiences that are a “home run” every time. The experiences I hear the teens talking about after the session is over. The experiences they ask to do again next week.

I know that if clients are engaged and are enjoying what they’re doing within the session, they’re more likely to accomplish the goals I’ve set for them. And isn’t that ultimately what we want? 

That’s why I created the Rap Pack.

What’s Inside the E-Covers.

Rapping is one of those musical experiences that engages teens while simultaneously targeting a variety of goals. Rapping is cool and the experience of creating and performing a rap can be adapted and varied in countless ways.

In the Rap Pack I explain step-by-step how I facilitate these musical experiences. You’ll learn how to create and perform rhythm combo raps (where small groups are assigned their own rhythmic parts that are layered on top of each other), which is ideal for working on sustained, divided, and selective attention. You’ll also learn how to facilitate freestyle raps, which are ideal for building self-esteem and allowing opportunities for self-expression.

Each and every idea listed in the Rap Pack has been used multiple times in my teen music therapy sessions. I also offer variations to fit the needs of those working with both groups and individuals.

In addition to the E-Book, you’ll also get twelve original mp3 tracks with looped beats that can be used with any of the musical experiences described in the Rap Pack.

Here’s a clip from one of the Rap Tracks:

My hope is the ideas included in the Rap Pack will help you get “unstuck” and kickstart your creativity for session planning. You won’t be limited by what’s included within the e-pages. The ideas will help spark your creativity so you can begin designing musical experiences that will work well with your particular groups and your unique clients.

The Rap Pack will be a go-to resource with easy-to-access ideas that can be implemented in a variety of settings (individual and group) and with a variety teen populations (those with behavior disorders, autism or other special needs).

The best part? It’s only $16.

Don’t Take My Word For It…

“I have had a chance to look at my Rap Pack for teens, and it is great! I really like it! The ideas are creative and clearly laid out, and the CD tracks are really useful! I used one of the back tracks as an “organizer” for an improv that I was doing with one of my teen classes and it worked great!  The teen population can sometimes be tricky to find “cool” and appropriate music therapy experiences for, so new ideas are always a treat!!  Thanks so much for creating this resource!! I’ve already recommended the Rap Pack to several colleagues!”
– Elizabeth Buckmaster, MEd, MT-BC

“I have enjoyed and used ideas from a couple of your E-Books. I have indeed found your books helpful and stimulating for my own creativity. Specifically from the Rap Pack E-Book I used the pre-recorded selections you included. So far I have used two of them and they inspired me to make one of my own using Garage Band. I really appreciate the way you broke the tasks down. I also have appreciated your recommendations of pop songs.  I have actually recommended the Rap Pack to one person and would do so again.  I think it is the most concise and organized of the E-Books I have used.”
– John Kneip, MT-BC

“Overall, a great resource! I would recommend it as it makes rap an approachable genre 🙂 I did use your rap track one with one of my autistic clients to encourage vocalizations and it worked great. Thanks for putting it together!”
– Vanessa Talbott, MA, MT-BC

Reviews of Tuneful Teens: Creative Ideas for Engaging Adolescents in Music Therapy:

“When I first started out as a new music therapist, the population that intimidated me the most was the tween and teen crowd. That’s why I was so excited when my friend and fellow music therapist Amy Kalas Buser launched her E-Book, Tuneful Teens. Amy provides everything you need — step by step procedures, templates, sheet music, etc. — to implement the interventions in your music therapy sessions. I highly recommend Amy’s book!
– Rachel Rambach, MM, MT-BC //  Listen Learn Music

“I bought your book because frankly after two summers, I was scrapped for fresh ideas. My favorite thing about your book is that every activity comes with a template or some sort of example which allows me to quickly and easily see what you did and how I can adapt it for my groups. My favorite activity has been Musical Hangman.  I have done similar things in the past, but I liked the addition of pulling a task out of a drum.  I have yet to use your obstacle course idea, but I love it.  Your book was just the push my brain needed to get my creative juices flowing again. Thank you!!”
– Ambriel Taylor

Reviews of Tuneful Teens 2: MORE Creative Ideas for Engaging Adolescents in Music Therapy:

“I love how Tuneful Teens 1 & 2 are laid out with simple intervention instructions, prop samples, and follow up ideas. It makes it very easy to understand and helps me feel confident I could successfully implement the ideas with a group.Would I recommend Tuneful Teens 2? Absolutely! The intervention ideas are great! I’m currently not practicing music therapy (we just moved to a new area), but reading through Amy’s ideas gets me excited to find new opportunities for providing music therapy in my new town. :)”
