Music therapists and educators around the world are now pretty much pros when it comes to using Zoom for their music therapy sessions and classes.

Earlier this week, I walked out of my virtual music therapy sessions glowing. The sessions had been great, the group of teens I worked with were totally engaged in our experiences, and it almost felt like there was no "online" barrier. I felt the same connection I feel when we're "in-person" together. It was pretty [...]

Since our usual morning rush has lightened up significantly now that we’re staying home, I started incorporating a new practice into my girls’ routine. Each morning, they choose a mindful card from our Mindful Kids pack. It’s a pack of 50 cards with mindful activities for kindness, focus, and calm. The activities are short and simple, [...]
Are you getting into the swing of these virtual music therapy sessions? I feel like it's exercising a whole new part of my brain and is stretching my creativity (which is something I really like). It took me a while to get the "wheels turning," but once they did, I found a whole new set [...]

My family is on Day 12 of self-quarantining and it has been...interesting. We are slowly getting our bearings and figuring out this homeschool/work from home/teach from home life. If you're a music therapist or music teacher who has suddenly shifted from in-person services to virtual services, I have some tips for you. In this post [...]
I don't have to tell you that last week our world was turned completely upside down. My business stopped all in-person services and moved as many clients and students as we could to virtual sessions and lessons. Definitely NOT what we had expected or planned for. But, music therapists are by nature creative, innovative, flexible, [...]
It's finally time: the doors for the Tune In To Teens E-Course are now open (but just for a short while)! This week only, March 9 - 13th, 2020, the course is open for enrollment (so everyone can progress through the course at the same time). Following that, the doors close and I don't really [...]
Over the past few weeks, I've given you a little sneak peak into the Tune In To Teens E-Course: how the course helps you with organizing all your music therapy materials, and teaches you social skills interventions (and raps!), motor skills interventions and how to make looped hip hop beats, and how to find music [...]
