Happy gift giving season everyone!!! Sure, this is a season about giving and family and faith and whatever else it means to you. But, lets be honest… gifts are involved. You’ll be giving them and getting them. So, here are some gift ideas that are either from music therapists, for music therapists or would be of interest to music therapists. (Do you see anything you like for yourself? Don’t be afraid to tell your loved ones, I’m sure they’d be happy to get you something that you really want!)
Boom Tote – If you use Boomwhackers® you need the Boom Tote… a tote bag that holds an entire set of standard size Boomwhackers®. Created by a music therapist (me!) and sewn by the sister of a music therapist. You can only get them at www.BoomTote.com.
Music Therapy Pro subscription – Learn from Rachel Rambach, Kimberly Sena Moore and myself all at one time at our premium website Music Therapy Pro. You’ll find videos, podcasts, resource lists, community forum and free CMTEs that cover a variety of topics that music therapists need to know about (communication, technology, clinical tips, etc.). At Music Therapy Pro, we’ve done the hard work already. Now we’re sharing our secrets with you.
Q Chord Gig Bag, Stretchy Band, or Bean Bags – I’m sure you’ve seen these products in the West Music catalog. But, did you know that they are all hand made by Janet Stephens? She is a very accomplished seamstress and the sister of a music therapist. She’s totally in the family. She EVEN is the sewist behind all of the Boom Totes. Get free shipping from her store from now until Christmas! Find them at www.BearPawCreek.com.
Jewelry from RoRo Jewelry Designs – Earrings, rings, necklaces and bracelets! All made by music therapist, Laury Royse. You’ll find some really beautiful pieces in her store!
In Harmony Integrated Learning Program & Kibbles Rockin’ Clubhouse – The first is a whole learning program that a music therapist would want for clinical work. The second is a great DVD for children with autism that uses music and modeling to demonstrate social skills. Both of these were developed from the fantastic team involving Julie Guy at the Music Therapy Center of California.
Brain Wreck - This is a book that is recommended to me from music therapist friend, Laury Royse (the SAME person from RoRo Jewelry). It’s the memoir of a business woman who suddenly becomes plagued with various neurological deficits completely out of the blue for 27 months. Read her story, Brain Wreck, here.
