Let’s be frank: It’s that time of year again when all the rich and famous people start thinking about how to give back around the holidays! AND of course, the non-rich and famous people do too, but it’s fun to get into the minds of those with a *little* more influence right? After all, it was because of YOUR LETTERS that Ben Folds & Daniel Levitin did THIS. Remember? Remember? Let’s get together and make more MAGIC happen this year!

The MTE team, the MTs of our FB group, a secret Brain Trust, and I have all put our heads together to figure out how to inspire Lin-Manuel to jump on board the MUSIC THERAPY TRAIN! Choo choo! And we’ve got prizes…. oh do we have prizes…

What We’re Giving Away

We decided the most appropriate Grand Prize would be a Roll-Up Keyboard so you can wail on your Hamilton tunes with your patients and clients! PLUS we’re throwing in the Hamilton MixTape, featuring Alicia Keys, Kelly Clarkson, Regina Spektor & Ben Folds, Queen Latifa, The Roots, and more! In addition, you’ll receive 6 months of an All-Access VIP Subscription with Music Therapy Ed.

GRAND PRIZE WINNER ($400 worth in prizes!): That’s $65 value for the Roll-Up Keyboard, $15 for the Hamilton MixTape, and $320 for the 6-month VIP Subscription!

Our 2nd and 3rd prize winners will win a Music Therapy Ed video course of your choice! (Value $85 – $275)
