Meet the Author: Kimberly Sena Moore
1. Your name:
Kimberly Sena Moore
BM in Music Therapy from the University of Iowa (2003), MM in Music Therapy from Colorado State University (2006), and am currently a PhD Candidate at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Clinically, use a developmental, brain-based approach in my work and specialize in the areas of trauma/attachment, health/medical, and rehabilitation.
3. Favorite band/artist in 7th grade:
I was a pretty big N’Sync fan.
4. Why did you want to write an e-book?
Based on feedback I was getting from my posts on the Music Therapy Maven about starting and running a private practice, I realized there was a real need for that type of information. I chose to go the ebook route as a way to create an accessible, functional resource for start-up private practitioners. (Click HERE to check out the e-book.)
5. What was your process for developing your e-book?
The most significant amount of time was spent on the content—organizing the ideas and presenting them in an accessible and easy-to-read fashion. Once that part was worked out I could focus on the logistics of selling and disseminating the work, connecting Aweber to Paypal, developing the auto-response series, and laying out the launch plan.
6. Favorite book (e-book or print) related to Music Therapy:
Just one? 🙂 Right now it’s the massive book “Handbook of Music and Emotion: Theory, Research, and Applications” as it directly relates to my developing research line on music therapy and emotion regulation development.
7. How would you describe your e-book in three words or less?
Practice Start-Up Guide
8. Who can benefit from purchasing your e-book and why?
My ebook is primarily geared towards professional and student music therapists interested in information about starting a private practice. It lays out the steps and resources you need to get your small business up and running.
9. What kinds of music therapy e-books would you like to see more of on MusicTherapyEbooks.com?
Not sure yet, but perhaps more books on research geared towards clinicians (e.g. reading, understanding, and/or conducting research)
