This month on the blog (and podcast) I’m going to be sharing my point of view (or P.O.V.) when it comes to children’s classes. Here’s the deal… I am a mom now. My son and I regularly attend Story Time at our local library. When I say regularly I really should say that we’re basically library dead heads. Library story time is a half hour of songs and a story for kids of different ages. It’s VERY similar to Mommy/Daddy & Me types of music classes. Now that I’ve experienced these groups as a participant I have a lot of opinions and insight to share. (Well, I hope you find it insightful, at least.) I’ll also be sharing tips that you therapists can use while facilitating these groups. PLUS – You’ll get a post devoted to resources written up by the fantastically creative and resourceful, Kerry Cornelius from Songs For Success.
Do you have opinions and/or insight to share on this topic? Please write a guest post and email it to me at michelleerfurt(at)yahoo(dot)com. Also, send along a picture of you with a short bio. Thanks!
Episode 2 of my podcast is up for your listening pleasure. I discuss the topic of PROFESSIONALISM, share survey results, find a lot of things interesting and more!
Here are the things I mention -
Next month’s topic: Music Therapy and Children
Doesn’t it feel like more and more music therapists are self publishing ebooks lately? Are you having a hard time keeping up with it all? I sure am!
Are you one of those self published ebook authors? Did you come to a rude awakening after you spent ALL that time birthing your ebook when you realized that you had to market it too? I sure am!
That’s why Rachel See and I are launching the best website ever created this Saturday, March 1st!
It’s an online meeting place designed to help connect music therapists to online books, promote ebooks written by music therapists, and assist music therapists as they publish their own ebooks.
It’s a place where you can buy, sell and create ebooks. Ok, the buying makes sense, the selling makes sense, but what about the creating? We are also offering consulting, editing and design services to help you as you create your own ebook. Neat, right?!
I’m really excited for all of you to see the website! Please sign up for our newsletter so that you can get a FREE ebook Online Resources For Busy Music Therapists.
But that’s not all! (Sorry! I couldn’t resist saying that!) On MARCH 1ST ONLY, we will be giving you 10% off of everything on the website. Just use coupon code: musictherapyebooks.comisopen! (Don’t forget the exclamation point!)
Finally, working with Rachel See has been so wonderful. I’m so happy and blessed that she allowed me to partner up with her on this project. Thank you, Rachel, for everything!
