Day 12 - Recent finds

Today's post is all about resources that I have found in researching for this blog and navigating the internet. Some of them are fun, some are directly related to work that I do as a music therapist. I do not intend it to be a complete list, nor do I profess any professional training in library literacy/searching. I do, however, profess to be a life-long learner with an interest in adding to my knowledge of, and practice of, music therapy! Please note - resources are listed alphabetically with no intended inference to a ranking of preference.


Center for Lifelong Music Making


I received an e-mail that stated that a personal profile had been set up for me on this website. I'm not sure how I feel about that? The information, however, was correct and linked to activity that I undertake on the net such as this blog. The website also contains links to conferences/training that I was not aware of previously. I'll keep you posted on my opinions of this website after I've had more of a chance to explore it.

Teenager Listening Test*

*Not that teenagers listen to anything resembling music today anyways LoL

Who says music doesn't make a difference?


Music Therapy at The Hospital for Sick Children (Toronto, ON CANADA)

Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy Video Portrait (Part 1)

The Music Instinct (PBS)*

*Note: Available as a 2 hr documentary on DVD (
To be released June 24, 2009). Several interesting segments are available via this website pre-distribution.

Podcasts/Mp3 Clips*

*Note: I hesitantly suggest this link because it is only available to members of the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA). Hopefully they will consider releasing some of the material via a restricted Creative Commons License. (Hint, hint!)


Of course, I recommend that you revisit previous postings to find links and resources that have been suggested or mentioned.

If you have any suggestions or resources that have been helpful to you, PLEASE comment away!
