It’s been a WHILE since I’ve posted a video on here, and I’M SORRY!!! Here’s a video that focuses on the importance of your rhythm hand, while teaching you the chords to an American pop classic – “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay”.

Crystal and I would like to thank everyone involved in the production, promotion, and attendance of our Grand Rounds event yesterday. It was so inspiring to meet everyone and to share the work that Tracie, Crystal, and I are so fortunate to be apart of. Click above for our thank you video, or the blue link below to see a portion of our Live Songwriting piece during the Grand Rounds.
Here we have a well-written overview of the many ways Music Therapy can be beneficial in the oncology setting. SLU’s very own Susan Mahon, RN, DNSc, AOCN®, APNG is credited for this informative explanation. It’s a quick read, and very useful if providing Music Therapy examples for potential clients, new students, or prospective employers.

We are thrilled to announce our latest opportunity to educate and inspire the community about Music Therapy with an upcoming Grand Rounds presentation! With Therapeutic Songwriting as our focus, the presentation will feature Crystal Weaver, CRC, MT-BC, Tracie Sandheinrich, MT-BC, and Grammy Award Nominee Andrew Dwiggins, MT-BC – describing how we and our patients collaboratively transform their experiences and emotions into song.
Why is songwriting therapeutic? How are songs for the radio different from therapeutic songs? Does a patient need to be an accomplished musician/songwriter for a session to be successful?
These and more questions will be answered by our engaging presentation: including patient interviews, session experiences, and most importantly – MUSIC!
