Hello! My name is Matt Logan, and I am a board certified music therapist. I earned a master’s degree in Music Therapy from The University of Iowa, and I currently work as a music therapist at a children’s hospital in Oakland, CA.

My goal with this website is to give you some musical tools you can use with your infants and toddlers. These tools will help with:

  • language development
  • promoting sleep
  • establishing routine
  • enhanced bonding and attachment
  • brain development through musical exposure
  • parental stress management (what? being a parent is stressful?)

The suggestions I provide on this website come from scientific journals and academic reports, as well as from many interactions with professionals actively working with infants and/or toddlers. They also come from interviews with parents who use music and lullabies in the upbringing of their children.

The core idea for this website and its accompanying lullaby CD started back in 2008 with an in-depth review of literature about lullabies with infants, particularly premature infants in the neonatal intensive care setting. It became an area of great interest to me, and I synthesized the research to form musical guidelines for the CD mentioned earlier. I continue to keep up with what is happening in the scientific world. This website is where I report some of the scientific findings and provide ideas for application, specifically from a music therapist’s perspective.

In the interest of full disclosure, I need to make it known that I myself have no children. When I’m not doing music therapy, I’m writing about it, playing with my band, or teaching guitar.

However, I do work with kids, and I am passionate about improving their lives with music. I will honestly report on what I learn from vetted sources and my own clinical experiences.
