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 creativee boost as we roll into the new school year?

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 by CBMT for 7 CMTE credits. Elevate is a monthly email subscription designed for music professionals who work with school-age and teen clients with autism and 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 or the attention & perception 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

And, 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

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 16 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
  • 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!)

You’ll earn 7 CMTEs (pre-approved by CBMT) when you complete and return the six Creativity Worksheets. Simple as that!

Here’s how to sign up – 

Elevate is usually $125 for a subscription.

This week only, August 15 – 19th, each package will be on sale for only $75. That’s $75 for the six months of email ideas, Creativity Worksheets, instructor support, and 7 pre-approved CMTE credits.

Or, you can choose the Combo Pack, which includes everything in both the Teen and Attention Packages (including 14 CMTEs), on sale for $115.

PLUS, I’m including some bonus material this week only. “Keeping Things Cool For Your Teen Clients” has tips on where to find the latest music, how to keep experiences age appropriate AND cool, and how to use client preferred music that may seem – ahem, not so therapeutic.

You might be feeling like you need a little kick start to your creativity. Or, like you need some fresh ideas for your middle and high school-aged clients. Whatever the need, I would love to have you join Elevate!
