I’m excited to share with you these wonderful Maven sponsors. They’re an impressive bunch and I’m honored that they’ve chosen to sponsor and support this blog. So please…if you haven’t had the chance to check them out, do!
Michelle Erfurt from the Music Therapy Tween
continues to share useful information for music therapy students, interns, and professionals alike. She is hard of work expanding her boom tote business
and occasionally guests posts on her husbands blog, the Restless Urbanist
. She also has some pretty exciting events happening in her life personally…but I’ll let you read about that yourself
Rachel Rambach runs the popular Listen and Learn
blog. Rachel is a board certified music therapist, a singer/songwriter, a blogger, a social media and technology enthusiast, and an educator–and you can find a little of all of that on her blog. Rachel continues to share valuable children’s songs, ideas, and tips for her music therapy and music education readers. A recent favorite? Rachel shared her spin on the summer breakout hit “Call Me Maybe,” turning it into “Sit With Me Maybe
.” A new L&L classic, I think…
The Musical Autist is the brain-child of music teacher and soon-to-be-music-therapist CJ Shiloh. The blog is dedicated to celebrating neurodiversity and believes in equal access to the fine arts. This is readily seen with CJs innovative SensoryFriendly Concert series, which according to her blog “…are free, live music settings which promote appreciation of the fine arts, while including those with disabilities who may not be able to sit still in a socially traditional concert venue.” CJ was recently a guest on the Music Therapy Round Table podcast, she is thiiiiis close to starting her music therapy internship, and her practice is expanding to consult with other professionals who want to launch their own SensoryFriendly concert series. WHEW!
Developed by music therapist–and fellow Iowa alum–Matt Logan, the A Perfect Lullaby
CD takes all the work from you and gives you the “best of the best” lullabies for you and your baby. As an added bonus, subscribe to their blog for tips on when to use lullabies, strategies for building a better bond with your baby, and other CD recommendations. And if you are going to this year’s AMTA national conference…be sure to see if you can find A Perfect Lullaby
at one of the Exhibit Hall booths 🙂
