I love using music to connect with people, at whatever stage they’re at in their lives. I take several community singing groups, as well as seeing private clients and leading music therapy groups in elder care facilities. I work privately as well as through Music for Life. Being a music therapist means that life is full of variety, as well as meaningful experiences with beautiful clients.

“[The special needs teacher] have seen the positive impact of your music therapy sessions with the students, and have observed how music therapy has benefited them. Other teaching staff and students’ parents have noticed developments in the students’ behaviour, communication and engagement. Please keep supporting them through music therapy!”
