It's finally time: the doors for the Tune In To Teens E-Course are now open (but just for a short while)! This week only, March 9 - 13th, 2020, the course is open for enrollment (so everyone can progress through the course at the same time). Following that, the doors close and I don't really [...]

{TUNE IN TO TEENS SPOTLIGHT} The Bonus Features

2020-03-04T16:25:45+00:00

Over the past few weeks, I've given you a little sneak peak into the Tune In To Teens E-Course: how the course helps you with organizing all your music therapy materials, and teaches you social skills interventions (and raps!), motor skills interventions and how to make looped hip hop beats, and how to find music [...]

{TUNE IN TO TEENS SPOTLIGHT} The Music

2020-03-04T16:25:57+00:00

One question I'm asked more than any other is this: "What music should I use with my teen clients and students?" I get it, because it stumps me sometimes, too. First, it's hard to find songs that are: a) appropriate (lyrics and content-wise), b) able to be used therapeutically, and c) considered cool by your [...]

{TUNE IN TO TEENS SPOTLIGHT} Be Flexible Rap & Other Social Skills Interventions

2020-02-12T16:20:34+00:00

On Sundays I provide group music therapy services at Friendship Circle Miami. It's an amazing program, where neurotypical teens are paired with teens with autism and other special needs. Together, they participate in music therapy and recreational programs like sports, karate, cooking, art, and yoga. At the heart of the Friendship Circle program is the [...]

{TUNE IN TO TEENS SPOTLIGHT} Organizing Your Music Therapy Materials

2020-02-12T16:17:04+00:00

I'm a paper planner person. Through and through. I love to color code, write notes, and keep everything neat and organized on a calendar that I can spread out in front of me and see as a whole. The same goes for reading. I don't use a Kindle - I love the smell and feel [...]

Looking For The Top Pop Songs This Week?

2019-07-18T15:42:56+00:00

I'm ashamed to admit this, but... I used to be a huge Backstreet Boys fan. I mean HUGE. One of those embarrassing fans. I knew all of the guys' birthdays, their favorite foods, and the kind of car they drove. My best friend and I spent hours making collages of their faces on our binders [...]

Here’s why I’m still watching American Idol…17 years later

2019-07-18T15:59:54+00:00

"Raise your hand if you're an American Idol fan!" Anyone? I said this at a recent session with a group of middle schoolers and they just stared back at me. I think I heard actual crickets. Apparently AI is't cool anymore?! Even if it's not still cool, I'm still watching. Want to know why? A [...]

Had To Have High, High Hopes

2020-01-14T18:29:12+00:00

Earlier this week I had one of those really great session days. Everything flowed, my students were totally engaged, and I got great feedback from the teachers and students alike. I had brought in some New Year's-themed interventions, which is how I like to start each new year with my school-age and teen clients. I [...]

The Noun Rap. (Yes, You Read That Right!)

2018-07-21T00:12:56+00:00

Growing up, I always loved writing. In particular, I used to write a lot of poetry and always loved seeing how I could make things rhyme and flow. Little did I know that skill would serve me very well in my music therapy work with tweens and teens! I recently started working at a school in [...]
