Expect the unexpected!

Hey there you AMAZING Rhythm For Good reader – You Rhythm RENEGADE – You Rhythm MASTER – and Rhythm Friend,

So, check this out. A year ago, I had no idea that this new sweet website full of crazy amazing music therapy continuing education opportunities would basically take over my life. . . . in *such* a good way. And here I am with all these little experiments that I’ve tried in the past – The super fun string of music therapy and drumming videos I created, the older adults drumming DVD that sold out, the San Diego based music therapy operation in full force, my group coaching program. Everything has been successful in its own special way.

And now I’m entering an even newer era of fine-tuning and path-paving my life.

An era for which I have no vision yet.

An era during which I wake up thinking “What am I doing? Oh, I don’t know what I’m doing! I haven’t figured that out yet. How strange to go along without knowing where I’m going and what I’m doing. What if I never figure it out? Wait, let’s not start the day so fearful. Let’s just go eat breakfast first.” This is the type of thing that goes through my mind. It’s no wonder I FEEL like I don’t get much done, when in fact, I truly am very productive. I know this intellectually, but feeling is another story.

Here are my options at this point, according to one of my very wise and incredibly-talented superstar coaches: I can LIMIT my professional growth so that I can handle it all on my own, OR I can partner with others to expand.

You can probably figure which road I’m taking =)

So, back to the site that has taken over my life . . .

The instructors, team, and I are very clear on our values for the brand.
We are giving away free online music therapy courses to students.
We offer music therapy professional supervision for CMTE credits.
We are accepting new courses.

Now, I’m going to go back to visioning. I’m in the midst of creating a new vision for the site.

Here’s my question for you :: What’s your vision for YOUR life and business?

    Just wanted to comment that the George Center video reinforces the importance of music, the discipline and art of it, and how inspiring it is to encourage people to continue to pursue music as a career. The world literally NEEDs music and sadly isn’t even aware that it needs it. My husband is a gifted musician, and has not been recognized for it; family and friends misalign him with the negative impacts of music: drugs/bad behaviors, but have never taken the time to see him perform. This has had a profound emotional impact on him, always striving for more and more perfection to prove himself (without drugs and bad behaviors). As a psychiatric practitioner, I have witnessed the most amazing positive effects of music on patients with mental and emotional illnesses. This video should have a powerful impact on those who are considering cutting music and art programs from our educational systems. Thank you Kat for sharing this vid, the performers are amazing and present what is achievable with love and ‘teamwork’.
    Yours in music,
