Blog Post:Introducing Madison Kronheim

Model Shoots are really a lot of fun. We get to play dress up with our customers and shoot some fun photos. Madison Kronheim has modeled for Quarter Moon a couple of times now. She is a pleasure to work with.  Always smiling.  Here is more about what is behind that smile!

Recently Madison stopped by Quarter Moon when she was on an outing with some of the teachers and students of Gretchen Everhart School. Gretchen Everhart School is part of the Leon County School system and serves students with intellectual disabilities ages 3-22 years of age. That day I learned that Madison was a music Therapy major at FSU and was interning at Gretchen Everhart. I wanted to learn more about Madison and her work with Gretchen Everhart and so we met at the Black Dog Cafe last week to chat. I think you will enjoy getting to know Madison Kronheim too.

Music has been important to Madison since she was very young girl growing up in Coral Springs Florida. She played piano and violin and sang from an early age. As she got older she moved on to also study guitar and French horn. She became interested in music therapy at FSU but it was a Music in Special Education class that really inspired her. She decided  pursue her senior internship at Gretchen Everhart. There she found her passion.

At Gretchen Everhart, Madison led 6-8 music groups each week and completed three research projects.  She worked on teaching singing  and music skills to her students age 3-21. She studied music therapy as a way to increase sociability and interaction and she researched music therapy as a means to decrease aggression.

Her internship also gave her incredible role models. She speaks with gratitude and deep admiration of the teachers at Gretchen Everhart. She saw firsthand their skill, patience and creativity as teachers and the way they always sought new strategies for reaching students.

This inspired Madison to add to her Music Therapy degree and apply to Boston University to enter their Masters of Special Education Program.
