“Would I recommend this course to others? Of Course! This course is great for any iPad user. Really motivates you to use your iPad. I really enjoyed the large list of apps, with a wide variety I made from this course. After taking the course, I plan to bring my iPad into session more frequently. I have one for work, and now I feel comfortable bringing it into sessions.”

“I would definitely recommend this course to others. It’s good to be educated in technology and how it can benefit what you are already doing! Bonnie did a great job, and I appreciate how applicable the course was. I look forward to giving my students another means of communication!”
–Stacy Reno, MM, MT-BC | Caro, MI
“I had no hesitations before enrolling in this course. From the previous iPad course, I knew Bonnie was an excellent instructor. I had much to gain from this CMTE. Already, I have begun to implement many session ideas and apps in the school where I work as well as in my own private practice. I feel that I have a greater knowledge of how to successfully use technology (specifically, the iPad) in my music therapy sessions. I truly loved the few clips of Bonnie using apps in her actual practice. It was great to see how she actually uses the apps in sessions with her clients. I would absolutely recommend this course to others. The MusicTherapyEd program and these courses are wonderful, educational, and captivating.”
–Elise Powell, MT-BC | Sharpsburg, GA
“This course addresses a very specific and practical need/area. It couldn’t be any more convenient than allowing the user to progress at their own pace. The Facebook forum is great for giving feedback to Bonnie and MusicTherapyEd, and wonderful for creating a community with others who are taking the course as well. Bonnie’s enthusiasm for her work, the information she was sharing and her pleasant tone of voice and affect were great. Thank you for this course!”
–Susan Phillips, MT-BC | San Antonio, TX

Great support! I am excited to keep advancing with technology and bringing new experiences to my clients.”
–Danielle Zick, MT-BC | Apple Valley, MN
“I really love the way Bonnie teaches. Everything about this course was perfect, from her level of expertise, her ability to clearly and concisely explain each of the app features to the ease and user-friendliness of the format. Now I know of ways to therapeutically incorporate the iPad in music making. In addition, the knowledge of apps that can help me keep the business side of practice in order is invaluable.”
–Heather Davidson, MT-BC | Silver Spring, MD
“This course has something for everybody. The explanations of how to use the apps were helpful, and gave me great ideas. I learned so much and will definitely be using more apps. I have already started!”

“I was very excited to start this course. I have been excited about my ipad since I got it and was eager to learn more about it. I feel this course has shown me many ways to be more efficient in my work, as well as help spark some new ideas for my sessions. I feel I get stuck in a rut of the same interventions and am excited for the new ideas the course has given me. I would definitely recommend this course to others as it was a great resource for using my ipad in music therapy and helped to motivate me creatively thinking about new session ideas. I really enjoyed the course and am excited to utilize all the new apps I have learned about!”
–Anna Mitchell, MT-BC | West Fargo, ND
“This course was so enjoyable, organized, thoughtful, inspiring, and helpful. After taking the course, I foresee more client engagement with how apps can compliment goals I am working on with them, as well as being more efficient outside of sessions. I would recommend this course to others, because there is so much wonderful information that can be used right away. I feel so much more comfortable with my ipad now.”
–Nancy Bell, MT-BC | Estes Park, CO
“Who wouldn’t want to know more about technology? This is the ultimate and most thorough app course out there. Bonnie was such a good instructor and explained everything in as much detail as she could while still keeping things fresh and innovative. I now have a better understanding of the types of apps offered to improve MT sessions, and the best ways to implement them.”
–Chelsi Jones, MT-BC | Logan, UT
“I would absolutely recommend this course as I think this is a great course for any therapist! I can’t wait to share some of the app ideas with our speech therapist, physical therapist and occupational therapist at work.”
