Things are off to a sprinter's start here in Virginia!
The national conference for the American Music Therapy Association is happening much earlier this year in the middle of October! That moves up all the timelines for final preparations for presentations and travel arrangements. This year, the conference is in St. Charles, IL, at the Pheasant Run Resort. I will be presenting a concurrent session on Friday, October, 12 from 7:30 - 9:00am: Arts Ensemble: A Palette for Success in Combined Music and Art Therapy. I hope you will join me if you are coming to Chicago!
Here are a couple of other things that have come across my virtual table the last few months:
- Terra Rising Records contacted me in hopes of broadening their network and getting the word out about their efforts to promote music in education and therapy. They seem like a commendable group and support many different projects for creating music and raising money to fund music and healing. You can follow them on Facebook.
- Jennifer Buchanan also reached out to me to announce her new book about music and wellness. Her group of music therapists, The JB Music Therapy Team, includes a highly qualified list of credentialed music therapists. You can find out more about her new book here.
