Let me call you sweetheart.

One of the reasons I've been so busy this semester is because I started my pre-clinicals for my music therapy degree. In our first semester of pre-clinicals, we work with one other therapy student and are usually assigned to work in a nursing home. I was assigned to work with my friend Lauren, and we are working in a nursing home with stroke patients and mild dementia. It has seriously been one of the best experiences of my life. From day one, the staff at the nursing home expressed the difference that we were already making with the clients. They are so cute and such a joy to work with, I seriously am so sad that we only have one session left!

This is one of their favorite songs that we do in the session.
Usually we ask them to think of significant other, or family member, while listening to this song and then we all share after the song is over.
I figured I'd give you guys a little taste of what I do!

Now it's your turn to share. :)


  1. wow, amazing! Sounds like such an interesting occupation!!

  2. Your major sounds amazing- it sounds like such an amazing field! :) I love your voice and I bet the old people loved it.

    I'm a special ed teacher and I am getting my masters right now in behavior analysis...I'm going to have to get 1500 supervised hours when I graduate and pass my boards. I want to do behavioral therapy for people to help them when they are children.

  3. Do you have sheet music for that song? I loved it!

  4. How awesome!!! I love this! Music is such a big part of my life I think your major is amazing!

  5. Brittany... can I call you sweetheart????
