This is an interesting time for us all, isn’t it? Some people may be enjoying the at-home time, but for others, this is a big challenge. I know that I miss my students, but I’ve been thinking about ways to educate them through the online platform that Metro Music Makers has been using. I have found what I believe are some worthwhile music sites to grow my students even though I’m not in the room with them. Maybe that break from common core math all day can be comprised of a few of these?

1. Flashcards – I believe we could all use a little note refresher, and
this website not only includes treble and bass clef, but also
alto and tenor clefs. It’s even got a timer for a little extra hustle.
Enjoy! Name That Note

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?

*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.
