One of the things I cherish most is the collection of session videos I have from my time working with children and teens in Miami over the past seventeen years.
I’ve used these music therapy videos, with written permission from the parents and clients, as teaching tools on my website, in presentations, and in my E-Courses.
They allow me to demonstrate what a technique might look like, so students and other music therapists can see how they might implement it with their own clients.
I continually receive feedback about how helpful these videos are in E-Courses.
Sarah Jarvis, a music therapy intern who took The Attention & Perception E-Course, said: “The edited videos of client interventions seamlessly fit into the instruction videos. It made it so easy to mentally jump from what a therapist can do to use this information and these techniques.”
Ashley Grampp, also a music therapy intern said: “I loved the videos! It allowed me to see everything from the the slides being put into action. Which helps me a lot!”
Julie De Keyzer, MM, MT-BC who took the Autism E-Course I previously offered on Music Therapy Ed, said: “I couldn’t stop watching the videos, I just got so excited. Now I’m going to go back and watch them all again and complete the action steps!!!”
And Kim Beck, MT-BC said: “The videos are awesome – it is so helpful to be able to watch you in action, Amy! I am SO loving the course! I hope that you will do more courses in the future! This course has been fantastic! :)”
Last week, I shined a spotlight on some of the cool attention techniques that participants learn in The Attention & Perception E-Course.
And the week prior to that, some of the cool auditory perception techniques that participants learn in the course.
This week, I’m going to share a small sampling of the 35 videos that course participants get to watch in The Attention & Perception E-Course.
The video demos teach:
How to incorporate your primary instrument (whether it’s the clarinet or the cello!) into your sessions:
How to use specific musical elements to obtain and maintain attention:
Tips and tricks for engaging teens:
And of course technique demonstrations…
…and more technique demonstrations…
…and MORE technique demonstrations!
My formula is: teach the technique, then show a demonstration of the technique.

Over the next week or so on the blog, I’ll continue to highlight some of the special features of The Attention & Perception E-Course that make it stand out from other continuing education courses.
Debi Kret, MM, MT-BC had this to say about the course:
“I worked in Special Ed for almost 25 years and you and I are on the same page. I loved the way you used your clarinet. I keep telling my interns to use their primary instrument. I have also tried to explain several of the concepts like the way you described the instrument and had them count the pieces while you put it away. Great to have video examples for my interns!”
And Laura Pruett, MT-BC shared this with me:
“I think the course is great. I didn’t realize there was so much to dissect about attention and perception, it was very informative. My favorite feature of the course was how organized everything was.”
More than 400 music therapists, educators, and professionals have taken Wholesome Harmonies E-Courses and successfully put the ideas into use in their sessions and classrooms.
