The past Friday Megan Martin, MA, MT-BC of Healing Sounds Music Therapy messaged me about a new song she wrote to use with the stretchy band. I am always excited about new music to share and the story behind this is pretty special.
Her song “Better Together” is pretty special and is a great reminder that we all are truly better together!
Why Are We “Better Together”?
You can read the post and see the full video on their blog at Healing Sounds.
But here is a quote by Megan, “I began to write “Better Together” a month ago, after the violence of Charlottesville, not too far from our office in Midlothian. I held my children a little tighter that day. I was saddened watching people tear each other a part. I wanted to help. The words, “better together”, resonated in a big way after that day. We are better together. I want my children to know, without a doubt, that my love will always surround them. With those sentiments, I put together a song about love for each other, as well as directional concepts, fine and gross motor movements, and tactile sensory integration. We sit together, in a circle, connected by a colorful band that cannot be broken. My love with always hold us together.”
She also said she would be willing to share the sheet music. You can email her here if you are interested: [email protected]
Below you will find the snippet of the video with the song.
“Better Together” also sums up what I love about building an online Tribe. Here we create and sew up the stretchy band that inspires creative movement and song writing – which then can by used by others to reach even more. Connected together through a prop and music around the world!
We can all learn from this song, we ARE “Better Together”!
