As your students and music therapy clients return to school, don’t forget that we have TONS of resources for you to use in your music therapy sessions to address IEP goal acquisition!
Do you have an ever-growing collection of singable books? I just discovered a new app and it’s a game-changer for book organization…just in time for the start of the school year! “BookBuddy” allows you to scan each barcode and tag it with as many goal areas as you want, all in a matter of seconds.
Now, when I’m in search of books for my sessions, all I have to do is click on the tag and the corresponding books for that topic/goal pop-up!

Today marks the fifth anniversary for MusicTherapyEbooks.com and to celebrate, we are marking down our “How to Write an E-book…E-book” to $5 for today only!!
In honor of Valentine’s Day, we want to say…
WE LOVE OUR AUTHORS here at Music Therapy E-books!
A while back, I shared a few of my go-to music-related podcasts/episodes. Well, a few more months of driving from to school-to-school has provided me with a few more recommendations!
- Henry & Heidi: I love Henry Rollins. He is a master storyteller and has an ability to tell a tale of musical lore with complete accuracy and panache.
- Switched on Pop: A podcast that is hosted by a musicologist and a songwriter…that is all about pop. In my opinion, it’s the ONLY way to digest and understand the pop music world. From their site, “A podcast about the making and meaning of popular music hosted by musicologist Nate Sloan and songwriter Charlie Harding. We break down pop songs to figure out what makes a hit and what is its place in culture. We help listeners find “a-ha” moments in the music. Switched on Pop will make you laugh, dance, and ask ridiculous questions like: does the falsetto in One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful” essentially make them our modern day Castrati?”
- Music Now: Rolling Stone: “The writers and editors of Rolling Stone take you inside the biggest stories in music. Featuring interviews with our favorite artists; what’s playing in the office; expert insight on the week’s biggest music news; and much more.”
Rachel will be presenting a 3 hour CMTE at the Midwestern Region music therapy conference in April!
This session will showcase a wide variety of technology used in music therapy sessions in the special education setting, including: visuals, adapted tools, iPad apps, Google Drive, e-books, Garageband, and iMovie.
Rachel will explain how these technology examples are directly applicable to their clients with Individualized Education Plans and the attendees will leave with innovative strategies to implement in their own music therapy sessions!
