Children's Songs for Therapy Book Cover

A user-friendly eSongbook for any therapist working with children, whether or not they can read music. Purchase of the book includes access to a members-only section of the author's site where you can access mp3s and videos to supplement the materials in the book. The author, Rachel See, MA, MT-BC, is a board-certified music therapist with a Master's in Music Therapy and a B.A. in Communication Disorders. She uses music as a tool to address non-musical goals such as behavioral, emotional, cognitive, speech/language, and physical goals. See collaborates and co-treats with SLPs, OTs, and PTs in her private practice.

Music, Language & Learning

One might ask, why do music, language and learning complement each other?

Without getting into the neuroscience of music and brain theories, the simple answer is that music involves or stimulates both sides of the brain, and when both hemispheres are engaged, we tap into more potential for cognitive growth or learning.

The other great aspect of music is that it’s auditory, visual, vocal, tactile and physical, and the more senses that are involved in an activity, the greater the capacity for learning and retention.

In a nutshell, one could say that music is an effective teaching strategy, and teaching strategies make learning highly transferable!
