Last week was music therapy week here in Illinois. On Wednesday I shared resources that IAMT had been putting out each day of the week. Here are the last three resources from the week. Happy Monday!
In case you missed it, check out the First 4 Resources.
Resource #5 – ONLINE CMTE’S at MUSICTHERAPYED.COM

Resource #6 – Free Chord and Lead Sheet Databases: ULTIMATE GUITAR and WIKIFONIA
“UltimateGuitar.com is one of the most extensive FREE guitar chord/tab databases online. You can search and submit chords to songs from just about any genre or decade. Ultimate Guitar also has an app available for download on your iPhone or iPad so that you can have your own personal folder of music ready at the touch of a button. The app now comes equipped with autoscroll, similar to OnSong.
Wikifonia is a FREE online lead sheet database on which musicians can download or submit lead sheets with the melody, chords, and words. Songs are transposable for differently-tuned instruments. For those with iPads, you can save the files as PDFs for quick access.”
Resource #7 – CLINICAL SUPERVISION
“Many IL MT-BC’s have noted clinical supervision to be an indispensable resource for his/her professional growth. Clinical supervisors and supervision groups are led by MT-BC’s and provide an opportunity to enhance your work as a clinician by integrating the perspectives of other experienced music therapists into your clinical practice through in depth discussion with other MT-BC’s. They provide opportunities to network with other MT-BC’s in the area, promote self-care in order to protect the longevity of your career as a healthcare professional and further your professional development through exposure to new applications of your treatment modality.”
