"When I read your book it reminded me of how I used music to teach my children when they were young. I love the activities in The Music Initiative and am so excited and motivated to try them with my grandchildren. Thank you for these great ideas!" - BETH BLANC
“I…agree with all of the ideas you’ve put forward [in The Music Initiative]. I work with middle school kids and I’ve found that they absolutely love oldies. I immediately wanted to try the Fleetwood Mac song, and it’s a huge hit!” _ JENNY BANK, TEACHER
"Kids don't always think about or like to wash their hands, but it is important for hygiene, germ spreading, etc. Erin taught my 5 year old daughter a simple little song to sing to remind her to wash her hands when she is done using the bathroom and/or before eating her food. She showed her once & they washed their hands together & then enjoyed a snack together. I really didn't think that she would remember, but the very next day after using the bathroom, I could hear her singing the song Erin taught her! Wow! What an easy thing to do that we, as parents, forget or don't think about doing for our children. Thank you Erin for teaching my daughter! Our household is a cleaner place because of it!" - MICHELE DAY, AND TAYLOR< AGE 5

I work with one on one with a young boy after school. Erin incorporated her session to help meet goals that his parents have set for him, such as reaching and stretching his arms and legs, using eye contact and having recipricle engagements with others. She is incredibly knowlegable and teaches me, too. She has provided me with ideas and tools that have helped me engage J more successfully at home.

It's an amazing gift to have the understanding how to help and teach children through music. There is more to music therapy than many of us in the field of special education can begin to understand. Music can help children on the spectrum connect with others, learn, and add to their quality of life.- PEGGY DROBNY, SPECIAL EDUCATOR/CAREGIVER
