What people are saying:
“I can now take the outline that I designed and use it to present at many of my work sites to raise more awareness about music therapy.”
“Everything about this class was positive. Very motivating. She gave lots of amazing information.”
” I learned how to engage an audience into my presentation through music, storytelling, buzz ideas, etc. And I was able to work on my anxiety/stress/nerves that come with presenting in front of large groups of people. I was able to take away techniques that I could use in every day situations to help cope with my anxiety during public speaking.” Hilary A.F.
” I like that Sally covered topics related to public speaking and not just the presentation itself (ex. breathing, posture, hand position, etc.).” Katie Z.M.
” I think I just have so much that I want to share about Music Therapy that I get myself frustrated with what I have time for. Sally’s framework for presenting really helped me put a leash on it.” Katie Z.M.
