Tonight I hosted a group for music therapists and interns who live in the Minneapolis and St. Paul metro area. The group went well-- we shared songs, improvised, and even got to Skype with one of our newer colleagues who recently moved to Indiana.
I have visions for this group. I'd love for us to meet on a monthly basis and facilitate workshops for each other, such as guitar maintenance, vocal warm-ups for those therapists who were not trained in voice, and even how to utilize social media. Hopefully, more of the music therapy community will join. Ideas abound. (One of the perks for hosting this group is that Thomas bakes chocolate chip cookies for anyone who is there. Damn good cookies.)
I also have visions of conducting research in the future. But that's for another time.
