In at this time’s weblog put up although, the main focus is on me extra so than in different posts (sorry!) BUT, I assumed the subject may nonetheless be useful, or at the very least slightly attention-grabbing.

It’s a “day within the lifetime of” put up. Really a “week within the lifetime of” can be extra correct, as a result of as a momtreprerneur music therapist, on daily basis in my week is totally different.

I run my music remedy enterprise, Healthful Harmonies, which incorporates myself and a group of 13 music therapists. I’ve a web-based biz with artistic sources and persevering with ed alternatives for music professionals. And, I train music remedy programs just about for my alma mater, College of Miami. (I actually love my profession, although, so this hardly ever appears like “work.”)

Right here’s slightly peek into my week –

On Mondays, I ease into my week with no periods scheduled. After my kiddos are off to highschool, I do some issues to assist me get grounded and prepared for the week forward. That may appear like a brisk stroll, journaling, a non secular studying, or meditation.

Following that, I compensate for emails and do ALL THE THINGS associated to working my enterprise: calling shoppers who’ve inquired about companies, placing collectively consumption paperwork for brand spanking new shoppers, invoicing, and dealing on authorizations for our shoppers in Florida who’ve medicaid (Sunshine Well being). I often squeeze in a couple of family chores earlier than my women get residence from faculty.

On Tuesdays, I session plan and lesson plan within the morning. Within the afternoon, I train in-person tailored piano classes to college students right here in Pennsylvania, the place I now stay. Following that, I supervise practicum college students from St. Mary of the Woods School and facilitate digital music remedy periods for the YMCA of South Florida’s after faculty program. About 15 packages throughout South Florida Zoom into the periods, and we have now college students who vary in age from 6 – 21.

On Wednesdays, I exploit the morning to do grading and emailing with my digital Intro to Music Remedy college students. Within the afternoon, I train digital jazz piano classes, and facilitate extra digital periods for the YMCA. Expertise is unimaginable, isn’t it?

On Thursdays, I catch up extra on my “enterprise work” by calling shoppers, answering emails, and doing all of the issues that preserve the enterprise transferring full steam forward. I additionally attempt to incorporate some self care by taking a stroll, or assembly up with native music therapists right here in Gettysburg (there are 3 that I’ve related with up to now!)

On Fridays, I’ve supervision conferences with practicum college students (one among my favourite issues to do), after which head off to facilitate in-person periods within the autistic help classroom at our native highschool. These periods are a part of the Therapeutic Arts Program I wrote about right here, right here, and right here (try these posts for TONS of artistic arts remedy concepts!)

I even have Rockin’ & Readin’ on the Library periods sprinkled all year long, in addition to periods with different packages that provide companies to youngsters and youths with autism and associated disabilities.

Daily of my week is totally different, which I LOVE.

I’ve a mixture of days with in-person periods and days the place I can cozy up on the sofa and bill. My enterprise permits me to do the work I like and really feel referred to as to do, however I’m additionally free to attend occasions at my daughters’ faculty.
