Comments from our users:

“(The therapist) connects deeply with all the service users she works with, and builds a strong rapport through the use of music.  We have seen first hand how music therapy can transcend communication barriers.  It is wonderful to see our service users interacting with (the therapist), responding to the music and being given a positive means of expressing themselves”
