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 [...]

In the past, we have prepared many performances that involved singing (watch an adorable video here) and playing instruments. Recently, I have started adding musicals to our program agendas [...]

The Making of our Halloween Musical ~ Part 1


The fall holidays are by far my favorite ones to celebrate! Although it doesn't always feel like fall in Miami, I still find ways to incorporate harvest and Halloween themes into my sessions at UCP's Early Beginnings Academy.
