Music Therapy Resource publisher Matt Logan states that there were many wonderful entries to this contest sponsored by the Iowa Chapter of Music Therapy. But Lindsay’s song won for the following reasons:
“Very effective in its clean and predicatable simplicity.”
“. . . Lindsay’s voice and affect! Really engaging and likable. The song is short and sweet and . . . includes directives.”
“Pauses clearly prompt client responses.”
“. . . the repeated lyrics of instructions so the client can listen to the instructions first, then have them repeated while completing the actions.”
Contest judges included Denise Coovert, Laurie Farnan, Rachel Rambach, and Dr. Natalie Wlodarczyk.
