Instruments of Peace
My husband, Don, and I are enjoying playing music in a variety of worship settings. Check out our duo website!
Prelude for Peace
In the fall of 2009, Sharon Thormahlen and I published our ensemble composition, Prelude for Peace. We wrote this work while traveling together in North Carolina in late October 2008. In it we attempted to capture the flow of peace, beginning with the ringing of bells - a universal symbol of peace. As other instruments and finally voices are added, the peace is passed from one to many, flowing out into the world. This YouTube video is of the Ecumenical Choir and Pilgrim Handbell Choir of Pilgrim Congregational Church in Port Harwich, MA.

Wedding Resources

Izaak Walton Inn
This is a wonderful place, right on the Amtrak Empire Builder line. The stop is Essex, Montana which is on the edge of Glacier National Park. What a fun place for a destination wedding if you are a nature lover! Check out my pictures by clicking on "Izaak Walton 2008 Trip" in the "photos" section.

Therapeutic Music

Music for Healing and Transition Program (MHTP)
After completing the MHTP coursework I became qualified to work as a Certified Music Practitioner. Their website provides valuable information about therapeutic music, a directory of trained CMPs, current course offerings, and upcoming events in this field.

On the MHTP site's home page, click on Newsletter on the left side, then near the top click on Newsletter Archives, open the July 2005 issue and read my article on page 6, "From Clinical Practicum to Internship."
