Friday 5! Productivity, philosophy, and more

By September 8, 2017Friday Five
It’s the Friday 5! Remember that you can check out past 5’s at Music Therapy Source. Last week’s special edition about vocal health was particularly popular. Also, please forward this to your music therapy friends and tell them to sign up so they never miss out!
I mentioned this app a couple weeks ago, but I didn’t really highlight how MUCH I use it. Evernote is an incredibly useful tool. I use it for archiving things like photographs, important documents, and correspondences I want to revisit. I also use it for writing these posts. To-do lists are really easy. The best part is that it will synchronize across devices. So while I’m writing this on my phone right now, I’ll open my computer in 20 minutes and finish there. I’m also using it to collect ideas and notes for my next book, but more on that later 😉
What I’m Reading
The Consolations of Philosophy by Alain de Botton. Life is hard. These philosophical excerpts and explanations help a bit.
Virtual Job Shadow
A couple years ago, Hannah and I put together the Virtual Music Therapy Job Shadow, a collection of videos on Music Therapy Source where we could send people who are interested in music therapy. If you’re like me, you get a lot of requests for shadows and can’t always accommodate. Hopefully this will help! Also, if you have some amazing videos that should be included, send me a link!
What I’m Listening To
Question for YOU
What is a music therapy tool that you just couldn’t live without? What helps you get the job done?
Have a great weekend!
Do you love Music Therapy Source and the Friday 5? Since 2009, I’ve been pouring hours and dollars into collecting and sharing resources for music therapists and people who want to become music therapists. This is a labor of love, and I’m not trying to get rich doing it. However, there are costs to maintaining the website and the ever-growing email list. If you love the resources and have the means to help keep it going, please consider subscribing to support this community! There are 3 different levels of support, which start at about the price of a pack of guitar strings ($5/month). And if you have already pledged some moolah, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. I am sending good vibes and a virtual hug your way.
