Here’s What People are Saying:
” I absolutely liked the variety of activities presented for various ages from young children to older teens. I also really liked the songwriting section, especially learning the different chord progressions. Like most MT’s, I had been stuck in a rut of my patterns used for improvisation.” Jennifer M.
” Sally was a great teacher, and I enjoyed learning new ways to use my music. I also learned how to implement play therapy in my work, as a lot of my children are drawn to puppets, sand play, and dollhouse play.” Susanne K.V.
” Everything was positive about the course. I learned so much and as always it’s great to be able to brain storm/troubleshoot with Sally and the other music therapists about difficulties we might be having in our practices.” Edele Rose K.
