Today’s The Day… for Shifting Gears and Changing Directions.

August 14th has held a strange significance for the past few years.  Two years ago, I had may last day driving to clients’ homes and announced my merger with Music Therapy Connections and the formation of an LLC with Rachel Rambach. Last year, I had my last day in our first set of studios and finished packing up everything to move into our new offices.  Today, I celebrate one year in our new space and share with you some changes that will be happening on this site.

Avoiding burnout

Life has taken a few dramatic turns over the past few years. When I moved to central Illinois (where there were no music therapy jobs and I was leaving everything and basically everyone I knew behind), I established On A Good Note as my own music therapy private practice.  This website was initially created with sole intention of drumming up business.  It has since seen several evolutions during which I’ve moved from wanting to simply gain new clients, to sharing songs, ideas, music therapy interventions, self-care tips, and more.   As of late, the blog and website have felt like more of a space where I can create and share other more unique, in-depth, and definitely more personal content.  I haven’t needed to share about lessons or therapy because we have our business page (musictherapyconnections.org) for that.  I haven’t shared as many MT or teaching resources because we have our new resource site (lead.listenlearnmusic.com) as well.  However, I’ve enjoyed the move into this new personal space so much, that the website it getting an overhaul!

Now don’t panic!!  All the things you are used to seeing aren’t going away.  I’m still sharing TONS of music therapy resources and songs, just on  lead.listenlernmusic.com and our Music Therapy Connections website and facebook page.  I urge you to check them out and follow our weekly blogs and videos as they are dedicated solely to music therapy, business, teaching, and professional growth.

If you’ve been hanging out on my site for more of the behind the scenes look at entrepreneurial life, self-care, creativity, projects, lifestyle, wellness, and all-around more personal side of things, then you will be seeing much more of that!

There is always so much happening in life and in the world around that I will be sharing some of the best and most positive or insightful things with you that I can. You may also be seeing some guest appearances and content from some of my favorite people in this world. So please, stay tuned and follow along on the journey as things unfold. It’s going to be a wonderful ride!

For now: find your happy place, lead with your heart, etc. etc. etc.

Can’t wait to share more soon! -Katey
