Maven Sponsor Shout-Out!

by Kimberly on December 12, 2011 · 2 comments

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 this blog. So please…if you haven’t had the chance to check them out, do!


Please join me in saying “hi!” to the latest Maven sponsor, A Perfect Lullaby. 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 podcast for tips on when to use lullabies, strategies for building a better bond with your baby, and other CD recommendations.


Michelle Erfurt from the Music Therapy Tween continues to share useful information for music therapy students, interns, and professionals alike. Her beautiful, hand-made boomwhacker ® totes were selling like hotcakes at the recent AMTA conference and there’s time, yet, to purchase one as a holiday present for your music therapy friend. Additionally, Michelle has just published a great, must-read series on finding music therapy work.


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 is less than one-month away from her goal of posting 365 blog articles in 2011 and she continues to share valuable songs, ideas, and tips in her Sunday Singalong and Friday Fave series.


Rhythm Ring is a nifty little instrument that lets you literally have “percussion at your fingertips.” This finger shaker can easily be used with string and percussion instruments and–let’s face it–that what we music therapists use most of the time, isn’t it? Congratulations are in order because Rhythm Ring is now a proud sponsor of Buddy Cruise this year…and have already donated 150 Rhythm Rings for an event next month! (P.S. This little guy would make a GREAT stocking stuffer! =D)


The Musical Autist is the brain-child of music teacher and soon-to-be-music-therapist CJ Diachenko. It just celebrated it’s one-year anniversary (congratulations Ms. CJ!) and has many accomplishments to show for it (including a highly successful Sensory-Friendly Concert series). CJ celebrated her blogging anniversary by re-launching a brand-new site, which you can find at

Hi Kimberly! Thanks for the shout out! :o)

I would also like to put out there, in the music therapy blogosphere, that because of The Musical Autist’s affiliation with Autistic Self Advocacy Network, music therapists can feel free to share our web address with those whom may benefit from this “avenue for self advocacy.” The goal of musical self-expression makes up some of our favorite objectives!

What a great service and resource, CJ! You are rockin’ and rollin’ out there 🙂 Congratulations again on your one-year anniversary and thank you for sharing the above information! ~Kimberly
