Creative Ideas & Inspiration
For Music Therapists & Educators
At Wholesome Harmonies, it is my mission to support other music therapists and educators, inspire their creativity, and elevate their clinical practice. With that mission in mind, and 17 years of experience as a music therapist and educator under my belt, I created a series of E-Resources.
These resources, which include E-Books and E-Courses, are designed help music pros infuse CREATIVITY into their sessions. Browse through our offerings and see where we can empower you to feel more creative in your session planning and more confident in your facilitation.
Email Idea Subscription
Elevate is a monthly email idea subscription designed for music professionals who work with school-age & teen clients with autism & related disabilities. It’s pre-approved by CBMT for 7-14 CMTE credits, depending on the package you choose.
Browse the E-Book collection for grab & go session ideas to jumpstart your creativity. The E-Book series has sold over 2,750 copies and is helping music professionals get “unstuck” and inspired during session planning.
“I highly recommend Amy’s book, Tuneful Teens. When I first started out as a new music therapist, the population that intimidated me the most was the tween and teen crowd. That’s why I was so excited when my friend and fellow music therapist Amy Kalas Buser launched her E-Book, Tuneful Teens. Amy provides everything you need — step by step procedures, templates, sheet music, etc. — to implement the interventions in your music therapy sessions.”

Browse our popular courses, all pre-approved by the Certification Board for Music Therapists (CBMT) for continuing education credit.
Tune In To Teens is a comprehensive resource designed for music therapists and educators who work with teens with special needs and are passionate about providing sessions that truly rock.
The E-Course was created for music therapists & educators who want to deepen their understanding of attention & perception, and use that knowledge to create engaging & effective musical experiences to target those processes.
“Amy is very knowledgeable and quite obviously loves what she does. I believe that many music therapists would benefit from her knowledge of this particular clientele and well as the push to find your own creativity again. So often we get bogged down in the day to day and just need to reconnect and get some fresh insight.”

“I hope you keep creating more E-Books and CMTE online courses. I love all the ones you currently have available. You are great and your ideas and presentation are so creative and also easy to implement, as you do a great job of “breaking” all the interventions down. Thank you and please keep creating!”

“I, of course love your resources and I think you are brilliant. Your work needs to be celebrated and I’ve told my friends about your website and how awesome your resources are.
The support I get from your resources makes my planning so much easier and less stressful. I am huge fan of yours and I can’t wait to see what you come up with next bc I will be buying it! I can’t wait for the next E-Book, keep crushing it over there!!”
