Friday Fave: Facebook

When I joined Facebook as a 21-year-old graduate student back in 2004, I would have laughed at you if you'd told me that one day, my mother and I would be Facebook friends. Fast-forward to five years later, when I am Facebook friends with not only my mother, but her friends, my dad, my former professors, and my students' parents. Not to mention hundreds of other people from all areas of my life.

Over the last couple of years, Facebook has transitioned from a neat way to keep in touch with friends from college, to a completely legitimate networking tool. I've befriended and exchanged ideas with other music therapists, explained music therapy to complete strangers via mutual friends' wall posts, and created a nice network of people who read Listen & Learn or use the services of my private practice, Music Therapy Connections. My Facebook page allows me to update my "fans" with new blog posts, information they might find useful, and best of all, it lets them get to know me as a person.

So thank you to everyone who has taken a moment to "become a fan" of Listen & Learn on Facebook, simply by clicking the Facebook box that appears in the left-hand sidebar of this page. (And if you haven't already, please do so!) I also wanted to share a few other Facebook pages that you might enjoy:

If you can think of any I might have left out, or you have your own Facebook page that Listen & Learn readers might enjoy, please feel free to share in the comments section or send me an email. Happy Friday, everyone!

Thank you for listing Neurosong as one of your Facebook pages recommendations! I just joined Facebook last February and it's been quite a ride. One of my favorite parts is how it has connected me again with old friends--and also connected me with new ones!

Hi Rachel, Love the Friday Fav about The Girl and her piano. I remember that piano in the basement when you were helping me to sing.
I love reading about all you are doing and seeing your beautiful Soul touch the world in your own amazing and talented way. Best to you and all of your projects.
