Yes, I would absolutely recommend this to others! Thank you Music Therapy Ed for a wonderful mini conference! I’m so thankful to you and your team for truly inspiring, empowering and supporting our community of Music Therapists. This conference was just what I needed to help feel connected and supported during a time like the current crisis.”

Kirsten Roybal, MT-BC

“I did not have hesitations with enrolling in Resilient Practice. I got the email and also talked about it with some of my friends who are MT-BCs, and I immediately went to sign-up! The session topics and the fact that you acknowledged the fact that money may be tight for us during this pandemic and offered the “pay what you can” feature drew me in to this virtual conference.

Especially during this time of COVID, I thought it was wonderful to connect with so many music therapists and feel validated by everything I am experiencing.

Thank you so much for offering this conference!!!”

Lindsay Amspacher, MT-BC

“THANK YOU! [Resilient Practice] was a much needed topic at a very difficult time in my life. The speakers were phenomenal. The positivity of the presenters engaged me and led to more learning. I have already created experiences for my students based on information from this conference.”

Amanda Meinen, MT-BC

“I don’t tend to always remain engaged with at home CMTEs, but the energy and spirit of the presenters made the entire thing worth it. [Would you recommend this to others?] Yes, absolutely.”

Stephanie Zaic, MT-BC
