What Daniel Tiger Can Teach Us About Songwriting

As I write this blog post, my 3-year-old is watching Daniel Tiger and my 7-month-old take is taking one of her mini-non-consolidated naps (can anyone relate?!) I've had many Daniel Tiger episodes playing in the background as I try to get a little work done during nap/quiet time. This is because I'm home with my [...]

Two Piggyback Songs to Promote Language Development

Some of my favorite services to offer are developmental music classes for babies and their caregivers. I just love the developmental stage when babies are reaching milestones in different areas. (My little one is 5 1/2 months so we are knee deep in this stage!) Wholesome Harmonies provides developmental music classes for babies at the Brockway Memorial Library and at [...]

My Favorite Movement Song for Babies

  Monday mornings are my favorite. I know that doesn't sound believable, but it's true! On Mondays I spend my morning making music with babies and their parents or caregivers. I do in home individual sessions and then a large group session at the Brockway Memorial Library in Miami Shores. I love leading sessions for [...]

You Can Use the Clarinet for That?

I realized on Monday that I don't use my primary instrument nearly enough during my music therapy sessions. I have to admit that sometimes I get comfortable using my guitar and my keyboard and forget about all the other interesting instruments I have available to me that I play ~ the clarinet (my primary instrument [...]

New Book ‘n Songs To Add To Your Collection

I just got back from taking Brooke, my little one, to story time and our local library and let me tell you, she loves it! Now that she's one, everything is more fun. She's getting into the movements of each song and she's very observant of the librarians when they read. I lead baby and toddler developmental music classes at library [...]

Rockin’ & Readin’ at the Library

  In last week's blog post, I shared about the library programs we offer at the Miami-Dade County Library System ~ Rockin' & Readin' (a music therapy program that targets literacy skills) and Baby & Toddler Rock (both developmental music programs). I'm thrilled that we announced that we JUST received funding to expand and offer these programs at the Brockway [...]

Rockin’ Out at the Library

Does it seem interesting that a post about the library starts with the phrase "Rockin' Out?" Typically you think about being very, very quiet in the library, but with the music therapy programs offered through Wholesome Harmonies, we are anything but quiet! For five years I've been facilitating music therapy programs at Miami-Dade Public Library System. [...]
