4 Why did you want to write an e-book?
I am starting to look more for e-books since I have a lot of my music organized in an app on the iPad. I know others can use this format.
5 What was your process for developing your e-book?
It began as a printed document that I was putting together for a class I was teaching at a dulcimer week for adult beginners, including those in the Road Scholar program, and since I put this together completely in an electronic format, it was easy to make the decision to go with an e-book.
6 Favorite book (e-book or print) related to Music Therapy
I keep the Guitar Songbook for Music Therapy by Kathryn Scheldt and Frances McClain on my desk at all times.
7 How would you describe your e-book in three words or less?
Organized, Sequential, Handbook
8. Who can benefit from purchasing your e-book and why?
Anyone wanting to learn to play the dulcimer, or wanting to know how to implement the dulcimer more into their current programming.
9. What kinds of music therapy e-books would you like to see more of on MusicTherapyEbooks.com?
10. Anything else you would like to add?
I’m very excited to have this opportunity. I have been considering doing an e-book since taking the technology course from Kat Fulton on MusicTherapyEd, and it was perfect timing to receive the invitation. I’m thinking about the next one already!
