A Music Therapist Wearing Many Hats

2022-03-24T14:32:01+00:00March 24th, 2022|

Did I ever mention here that I almost became a K-8 music teacher? My first year at University of Miami I was a music ed major and thought for sure that was the direction I was heading. That is, until I learned about music therapy. My work study job was right next to the Music [...]

A New Year And No Goals

2020-01-04T21:05:00+00:00January 4th, 2020|

Happy 2020! The new year is upon us and it's time for a fresh start. I've enjoyed looking back at my past new year's posts and remembering the accomplishments of those years. But this year, to be honest, I didn't accomplish as much in my business as I had hoped. My two girls are young [...]

Noticing the Little Things (and how my clarinet helped)

It feels like it has been quite a while since I've been in your inbox! The reason is a little thing you may have heard of called Hurricane Irma that was headed straight for Miami. I evacuated with my two girls last week while my husband, a firefighter/paramedic stayed behind to work. I'm glad to [...]

Last week I registered for the National Music Therapy Conference in St. Louis, Missouri and I AM SO EXCITED!! I haven't been to a conference since 2013 when I was pregnant and I have been itching to go back ever since. Honestly, for me, waiting for conference is like waiting for Christmas. I get so [...]
