Holiday Pop Songs for Teens

2021-12-10T21:37:52+00:00December 10th, 2021|

Is it feeling festive where you are? I'm about to celebrate my first cold Christmas in twenty years, and I'm pretty excited about that. (It's much easier to get in the holiday spirit when it's snowing, rather than sweltering!) I'm busy facilitating both in-person and virtual music therapy sessions, and planning a virtual holiday show. [...]

Christmas is right around the corner (do you even need me to tell you that?) and our holiday sessions are in full swing! We're jingling bells, ho-ho-ho-ing on the kazoo, and playing Holiday Musical Pictionary. I recently started working at a preschool in Miami, where I provide music therapy for the 2-, 3-, and 4-year-old [...]

"Halloween-themed attention & perception training exercises." Kind of a mouthful, isn't it? That'a just a fancy way of saying that we're going to use Halloween songs to work on attention and perception skills (like listening and following directions). Here's an idea that can be used with clients of all ages: Play a spooky Halloween song [...]

The Leaves Are Falling One By One

2019-09-26T13:57:35+00:00November 7th, 2018|

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 [...]

2019-12-18T17:00:09+00:00February 7th, 2018|

I've been on a session planning kick lately. Even though I have almost thirteen years (!!) of session plans saved up I still love coming up with new ideas, writing new songs and thinking of more creative ways to help my clients meet their goals. Lately, my three-year-old daughter has been really into the Nutcracker. She's [...]
