Technology has been a HUGE part of my journey as a music therapist.  Each week I will share a video, resource, tutorial, app review or technology tip that I have found useful in keeping my music therapy practice and my business in tip-top technology shape!

Purple Video IconHave you ever wanted to use a YouTube music video in your individual or group music therapy sessions but don’t have internet access in your session space to use it?  While I don’t use videos in music therapy sessions often, I have found videos helpful to further demonstrate the meaning of a song, teach a social skill or demonstrate a musical element to enhance my client(s) capacity to conceptualize, visualize and master a skill.  This week I’m sharing a SUPER easy way to download and save YouTube videos to your computer so you can burn to a dvd, share to another device (an iPad, maybe?!) or play during a session without having to connect to the internet.  Click on my Vimeo tutorial below to watch this time saving tip. Oh and be sure to give this tutorial a thumps up if you found it helpful!
