Will These Songs Help You?

I have two items to address in today’s post. They are completely and totally unrelated.

Music Therapy Conference Tweetup

Wait…a tweetup? What’s that?

I will post a video this week that defines a tweetup and how it relates to our upcoming national music therapy conference.

Plus, I’ll be asking for your input on something.

More later.

Music about Science

I started listening to podcasts and audiobooks when I took up running last spring. This morning I heard an episode of Science Friday. Ira Flatow, the host, had the band They Might Be Giants as guests.

They Might Be Giants (you know, the guys to do that “Istanbul” song. I got a kick out of Craig Ferguson’s rendition!) recently released a CD called Here Comes Science [CD/DVD].

Apparently They Might Be Giants have created several educational CDs. In Here Comes Science [CD/DVD], every track covers a topic of science–biology, chemistry, evolution, astronomy, etc.

It’s common for music therapists to create songs that teach educational concepts. But we can’t do it all and be everywhere, so I always get excited when there are other resources I can recommend (which I will do later today to the teachers I work with!)

Plus, it looks like you can purchase set for only $9.99, an absolute steal!

A person whose music I love (and who is a delight to meet live and in person) is Christine Lavin. She has some very intricate (and hilarious) song about scientific things and one particularly memorable one about a spelling bee! Check her out: http://www.christinelavin.com/
