Engaging school age clients on IEPs

This workshop is approved by the CBMT for 4 continuing education credits. There are currently 2 choices for a live workshop: Thursday, January 18th or Saturday, February 3rd, 2018. For complete details and registration, click here.


This course will give you a wide variety of new material to apply in your school or home based music therapy services. Participants will learn original songs plus modified versions of traditional and contemporary songs. The majority of songs in this workshop will be led on guitar, however, you can easily transition most experiences to lead on your primary instrument. Experiences will focus on the use of percussion instruments, movement, picture sheets, and vocalizations to engage students regardless of functioning levels. We will also explore how to modify music therapy experiences to target your specific population and goals. All attendees will receive lyric and chord sheets as well as recorded samples for take-home learning.

Music therapy students and professionals at all levels are encouraged to attend this course. There are no prerequisites, and every effort will be made to help you customize these techniques for use with your specific client population.
