Music for Special Kids - Now Available!

I am SO excited to announce that after 9 months of writing, editing and waiting, my book Music for Special Kids has been released and is now available for purchase through Jessica Kingsley Publishers! I'm very happy with how it turned out and hope that it will be a terrific resource for many parents, teachers, caregivers and music therapists!

The 192 page book contains tons of songs, musical activities, instrument activities and resources to augment your use of music with children in the classroom, in therapy or at home.

Over the next few days, I'll highlight some of the chapters of the book and what you'll find inside.

The first chapter is entitled "Singing" and includes Hello Songs, Omitting Words or Sounds in a Song, Replacing Words With Syllables in Familiar Songs, Nonsense Songs, Call and Response Songs, Songs to Teach Academic Concepts, Adapting Familiar songs, Sing and Read Books and Song Cards.

To find out more, or to order your copy, please go to the Jessica Kingsley Website found here: http://www.jkp.com/catalogue/book/9781849058582
