A few days ago, I don’t remember how it happened, but it came across my radar that Snoop Dogg has a kid’s album.

Yep, you read that right.

I wasted zero time in YouTubing this so I could hear exactly what the album was all about.

Much to my surprise, the album is not only adorable, but the songs can be used therapeutically in our sessions!

The first one I listened to was the two-part Affirmations Rap. It’s simply sweet, effective, and has a cool back beat that I know my middle school clients and students will love.

Just search “Snoop Dogg Kids Album” in YouTube and your ears will be blessed with the sounds of Bow Wizzle telling you “Anything is possible.” And “Every problem has an answer.”

Further on in the album, he takes “Row Row Row Your Boat,” adds a back beat, and raps that “Yap yap you’re the winner of the first race. Repping girl power coming in first place. Perseverance is power!” Genius.

“Everybody’s Different” with it’s rap about “wearing our differences loud and proud” gives me warm fuzzies.

I don’t know about you, but my wheels are turning not only about how these songs can be used therapeutically, but also how I could turn other kid’s songs into these fun little raps (I talk about this a lot on the blog).

Over the next few weeks, I’m going to share more popular songs and how I’ve been using them to meet therapeutic goals in my sessions with tweens and teens, middle and high schoolers.

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.
