We Are Rockin’ & Readin’ at the Library in March

The library is one of my favorite places to be. I've always loved the smell of the books and the peacefulness that lives in the bookshelves. Well, that is the peacefulness until storytime starts! If you've ever been to one of our Rockin' & Readin music sessions, you know we get a little bit loud [...]

The Leaves Are Falling One By One

Although I have a storehouse of session ideas (especially when it comes to Fall!), I always like to keep things fresh and bring in new musical experiences for my clients. My mom recently sent a book in the mail for my daughters (who are ages 2 and 4) and they love it, but as soon [...]

Need More Beach Theme Ideas?

I don't know about you, but I'm not ready to put my summer session plans away just yet! I love using my uke and singing about relaxing days at the beach. There are so many creative ways to design sensory, cognitive, and movement activities around a beach theme (click here to check out some of those [...]

It’s Fall Ya’ll: Halloween Books & Ideas

It's no secret that I love Fall and I love Halloween. I find that there's something about the season and holidays that sparks my creativity for planning new ideas. Since I lead many sessions at our local library branches, I'm always looking for books to incorporate into my sessions. Here are links to videos where [...]

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. [...]

Create Your Own Book ‘n Songs

Ever since my Rockin' and Readin' at the Library program started back up in August, I've been thinking a LOT about singable stories, or as I like to call them Book 'n Songs. Because these sessions take place at the library, many of the interventions target early literacy skills. We work on letter identification, rhyming words, [...]

Making Music at the Library

I'm writing this blog post with one hand as my 4-month old baby snoozes on my chest. Not a bad way to get work done, is it? As hard as it is to be productive with such a cute, interactive, smiley baby around, I've still managed to set up some excellent programming for the upcoming [...]
