Dear Julie.

My name is Xiaolei Gong. I am a student teacher and I attended your music training course in Auckland on Saturday 14th May, I absolutely adore you.

That training helps me gain the knowledge about how wonderful music is, and introduces some ideas on helping and supporting children who have Autism.

I tried the parachute at my mat time with the children, playing the “Up and Down and Around and Around” song track 16 from your CD “MAGICAL MUSICAL PLAY” and they love it!!! I now believe music can help them to calm down.
