Sometimes a “Hug Works”

Finding creative musical sources that can be used and adapted for many populations is critical for a music therapist student or professional, as well as writing original songs.  One source that I’ve been secretly enjoying for over a year now is “Hugworks.”  Now I am going to proclaim it to the world, and highly encourage that students and professionals take a listen to some of their great tracks, and maybe even pick up a few of their CD’s.
