Q and A about Music Therapy


drumcircle

I was asked to share about my profession of Music Therapy. And so, without further ado, here are the questions followed by my responses: Hope you enjoy! 1. To start, could you tell us a little about yourself? What’s your backstory? I am originally from New York, and moved to Los Angeles about 34 years ago. I always loved music, rhyming, composing lyrics, singing and playing piano. More recently, I studied harp and play that instrument as well for my current clients and patients. I hold a B.A. in music, and a M.A. in Special Education. I’ve worked as a music therapist with children who have developmental disabilities, as well as patients in hospice care. 2. In layman’s terms, what is a music therapist? A music therapist is a trained professional who uses music for non-music purposes for clients and patients.

Another Kids’ Book Review: “Look What My Parents Give Me!”


Look What My Parents Give Me

  I don’t know about your mom, but every time Mother’s Day rolled around, my mother would say, “Every day  is Mother’s Day.”  As children, we were taught from very early on to honor our father and mother. Doesn’t the Torah (Bible)  teach us that we should respect  our parents all the time? Yes, it does. But respect and honor don’t always translate into appreciation. Nowadays, children and teenagers seem to have a sense of entitlement, feeling that adults owe them. We are living in the Me Generation, and it’s never too early to educate kids on the important value of appreciation for their parents. Share PostTwitterFacebookGoogle +1Email


“Imagine If…” – A Children’s Book Review


Way back  when Theodore Seuss Geisel wrote a zany                 rhyming book for children, I wonder if he realized that he’d be so successful with the series that future  authors would attempt to imitate him. I mean, imagine imitating green eggs and ham. Or a cat in a hat. Or a fox in socks.  It’s kind of ridiculous, wouldn’t you say? Still,  for  years, wannabe Dr. Seusses congregated in coffee houses, libraries and living rooms trying to mimic the flavor of the venerable Dr. Seuss. Share PostTwitterFacebookGoogle +1Email


Graduations, Grandparents, and Gratitude


Today I attended an important graduation. It wasn’t my own graduation. I haven’t had any of those lately, even though several years ago, I graduated from being a mom of growing children. Today, I attended my grandson’s kindergarten ceremony.  And it was most exciting because my husband and I enjoy watching our grandsons’ milestones. You see, my youngest son, who is 20 and his brother above him are studying out of town. With the rest of our sons married, my husband and I have got the empty nest, and we are grateful.

The Road to Great MIL-hood Begins in the Cradle


Recently, I have become acquainted with Beily Paluch, another mom of many boys. Beily wrote a book about — you guessed it — being a mom of boys. As a mom of boys, I relate to this topic, and so, I have had the pleasure of writing a guest post for Beily’s blog. You can find that post which talks about how becoming an awesome mother-in-law, begins in the cradle. What? In the cradle? Find out about that  right here. Enjoy! (and don’t forget to leave a comment over there on Beily’s blog!). Share PostTwitterFacebookGoogle +1Email
