Are you struggling to come up with new ideas for your sessions each week?
Is your time super limited for creating materials?
Or, do you just need a creative boost?
If the answer to any of these questions is YES, then I have a resource that will be right up your alley.
It’s called Elevate, pre-approved for 10-20 continuing ed credits, depending on the package you choose. Elevate is an email idea subscription designed to help you infuse creativity and fun into your music therapy sessions with school-age & teen clients with autism & related disabilities.
Here’s how it works –
There are three parts to Elevate: monthly musical experience ideas sent straight to your inbox, Creativity Worksheets, and instructor support.
Musical Experience Ideas: You’ll receive one package of session ideas straight to your inbox at the beginning of each month, for a total of 6 months. You can choose from the Teen Package, The Attention & Perception Package, or The Holidays & Themes Package.
The ideas will be in PDF format and include step-by-step instructions, as well as all the information you’ll need to prepare and facilitate the musical experiences. This includes lyrics, MP3s, visuals, musical game templates, or listening guides.
Each month will target a different skill or goal area, and you’ll receive brand new ideas to spark your creativity.
For the Teen Package that includes:
- Icebreaker Rap Package
- Music & Art Experiences
- Ideas for Song Discussion
- New Musical Game Ideas
- Pop Song Rhythm Games
- Rapping & GarageBand Ideas
- Musical experiences that incorporate current pop songs
For the Attention & Perception Package that includes:
- Pop Star Rhythmic Combos
- Make a Band Musical Experience
- Listening Guides & Listening Games
- Pop Song Rhythm Games
- Themed Rhythmic Combos
- Musical Obstacle Course
And, for the Holidays & Themes Package that includes session ideas for the following themes:
- Planets/Outer Space
- Going to the Movies
Creativity Worksheets: With each month’s idea, you’ll also receive a Creativity Worksheet that prompts you to plan out goals, objectives, and musical experiences to work on the skill or goal area with your own unique clients. This will double or triple the number of ideas you walk away with!
Instructor Support: In addition, you’ll have email access to ask me questions and get support, as needed. I’m trained in Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT) and have 17 years of experience working with children and teens with autism and related disabilities. I teach music therapy courses virtually for University of Miami and have research published in the Journal of Music Therapy.
Support questions can be about any topics related to (but not limited to):
- Creating goals, objectives, & musical experiences
- Implementing & adapting techniques for your unique clients
- Building rapport
- Group management
- Determining musical preferences & learning repertoire
- How to navigate challenging situations
- Using pop music in a therapeutic manner (one of my favorite topics!)
- Or any topic relevant to the content in the packages you receive each month
You’ll earn the CMTEs (pre-approved by CBMT) when you complete and return all the Creativity Worksheets. Simple as that!
Here’s how to sign up –
