You would be amazed at what can happen as the result of setting a goal for your music, or even just admitting to yourself what you hope to accomplish with your music.

February 14, the day of love, is almost here. It’s the day where we celebrate romance with lots of chocolate, hearts and flowers. I personally do not think that Valentine’s Day is complete without a good playlist of love songs. If you know what you are looking for, you can find a playlist for any occasion in any genre. Though I would love to share from every genre and sub-genre, there are so many! So instead, I will break music down into four broad categories: classical, jazz/blues/big band, rock/pop and country. Here are some of my personal favorites; what are some of yours?
If you're new to Metro Music Makers, or you have a student who has never participated in the Junior Festival with us before, you're probably wondering what all the fuss is about.

*Note: The goal of this blog series discussing music therapy interventions is to give more information about the field of music therapy and what a music therapist does. For the safety of all those involved, only a licensed, board-certified music therapist should carry out these interventions. However, at the end of each blog, there will be a suggestion of how the benefits of the intervention may be carried out at home in a safe way.
