Testimonials

First of all I’m very thankful for the book (“Music, Learning and Your Child“) – love it from beginning to the end! You and your work are so inpirational! Where I actually got to know about you, was from music therapist Mercedes Pavlicevic book called “Groups in Music: Strategies from Music Therapy” where she appraised your work. I am also practicing music therapy and I am mainly focused on mums and their babies/toddlers and I’ve found your approach and work to be really encouraging. All the best to you and lots of inspiration and strength to carry on with what you are doing!
