I've encountered many a Music Therapist in the Child Life world, but never one of your caliber, talent, and passion. I'm not only a Child Life Specialist that's in love with you and what you do, but I'm also a momma who's seen her baby (with a speech delay) flourish through your songs, rhymes, and rhythms. I know all too well what it's like to work in a field that is undervalued and often unappreciated... So it's important to us that you know we consider you a blessing.

We have been looking for a music program for my 3 year old and 21 month old since we moved to the area over a year ago. So happy that we found Renee's program! My kids adore her and the lessons learned far outlast the 45 minutes spent in class. I think music is such an amazing way to communicate with my kids and for them to communicate with each other. It continues to amaze me the development they gain from a seemingly simple song.... coordination of movement, new words, some sign language, pitch, focus, rhythm... Incredibly grateful that we found a teacher that truly enjoys being with kids and inspires them to be musical every day.
