I currently provide visits to two Brookdale Living facilities. This corporation has a Celebration calendar with a theme for each month. Where possible, I try to incorporate aspects of the theme into at least one session. This month that means bringing Australia to northern Kansas.  Here are a few of the songs I will be including in my upcoming session with older adults:

To you have more simple song ideas? Please share them in the comments below.

If you are signed up for the SPARKS newsletter, you will receive more ideas and resources this morning for use with preschoolers, older adults, and intergenerational groups. If you aren’t on my newsletter list, sign-up  for future issues by June 14th and I’ll email you this newsletter.

  1. One of my twitter music therapy friends has provided a great resource: http://alldownunder.com/australian-music-songs/index.html . Check it out! Thank you, Evelyn.

    Another music therapist in Florida with Midwest ties is sending me a few photos she took while on a trip.

    And, another music therapy friend from France, Aurélien Gillet, has shared this Youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ye54VP6No84&feature=youtube_gdata_player

    I adore collaboration! Thanks for sharing!
