At every AMTA conference, I hear these soft whispers from around the corner of our booth… “Kat, are you going to do a Black Friday sale this year?…” And this year is no exception. Mark your calendar for Friday, November 25th. Use the code MTsRock2016! and choose any course!
This year, we’re doing something COMPLETELY outlandish. Our courses will go 50% off AND 50% of your purchase will go directly to the Ukulele Kids Club. This means that half of what you put into your purchase gets pumped straight back into our profession.
Why Ukulele Kids Club? Before they send out ukes, they make sure that there is a board-certified music therapist on staff. If the hospital doesn’t have an MT-BC on staff, then the hospital does not receive donations. Additionally, the music therapist is the first point of contact, which means that you can rest assured that the ukuleles are used properly!!!
No more ukuleles collecting dust in the corner! Or worse… used for sword fights!
The Uke Kids Club is also involved in a matching program… EXAMPLE: They approach a hospital with $20K to fund a music therapy program, and the money doesn’t go through unless the hospital matches it! That way, the hospital is buying into music therapy. The music therapist is treated like the leader s/he is. And the kids benefit like gangbusters… Amazing right? I hope you’re excited to support the Ukulele Kids Club!
So, please tell your friends that we’re having this sale, and the sale benefits our entire field. The Ukulele Kids Club has proven to me that they are on board with Music Therapists as Leaders in Healthcare. Let’s support them in supporting our patients.
Be well, feel good, and make MUSIC! Kat
