This time next week I will be in Louisville, Kentucky for the American Music Therapy Association Conference. Here are my top 5 resources & opportunities for music therapists in the week prior to attending the AMTA Conference:
The week prior to conference is filled with packing, rescheduling sessions & lessons and preparing my family for a few days apart. I look forward to re-energizing my private practice and meeting up with music therapists from all over... especially the imagine Editorial Team! I hope that these resources & opportunities were helpful and enjoyable to you.
My first Studio Recital is this Sunday, November 2, 2014. Consider attending if you are in the SE Charlotte Area & would like to support my musical students on violin & piano. There is no admission fee. Plus, two of the students will be debuting original compositions!
If you participate on Instagram then check out the recent posts @piedmontmusictherapy! The most recent impetus to start an account was participating in a sweepstakes that Kat Fulton & Julie Palmieri announced through Music Therapy Ed. Thanks to their creative spirits and enthusiasm! Plus, kudos to the sponsor West Music! Past purchases of instruments by PMT, LLC @WestMusic included awesome customer support and service.
The photos posted on Piedmont Music Therapy's Instagram Account contain potential or past interventions implemented for goals such as increasing self-expression, promoting group cohesion, incorporating gross and fine motor movements. Winners for the give away will be announced at #AMTA14. Another blog post will follow containing details about the annual American Music Therapy Association Conference, just 2 weeks away!!
Consider attending a recital featuring many students' first performances in public. Many of the young musicians have hopes of continuing studies on their piano or violin. Some dream of further musical pursuits on another instrument such as the flute.
Thanks to all of the families who have been able to support their children with private music lessons. It is a joy & privilege teaching them. I look forward to accompanying the performers on stage in three weeks!
