letters Dear Readers, It is with great pride and pleasure that I welcome you to the inaugural issue of imagine, AMTA’s new online journal on Early Childhood Music Therapy. As the first co-chair (with my esteemed colleague and friend, Marcia Humpal) of the AMTA Early Childhood Network, I applaud the vision of imagine. This multimedia creation is a dynamic undertaking, from the articles, to the podcasts, the information about the Early Childhood Network, and so much more. As both a practicing clinical music therapist and as the President of AMTA, I feel the imagine online sources offer a wealth of resources for our members and colleagues, as well as for families with young children. We have a fabulous editorial and business team in place, and the sky’s the limit for what we can accomplish together in the future. Who would have imagined these possibilities in 1994? I look forward to seeing the announcement of each new issue arrive in my inbox, visiting the website often, and recommending it to my colleagues and friends. Congratulations to Dr. Petra Kern and the imagine team as well as the entire Early Childhood Network. Ronna Kaplan, President American Music Therapy Association

Best wishes,

Ronna Kaplan, MA, MT-BC, NMT President, The American Music Therapy Association
