Care & Healing

Overview

Music promotes good health and joyful feelings.  It alters our feelings because we are using the breath in a different and beneficial way.

"The breath is the common drum upon which all life beats"
        ~ Michael Great Mountain Ash

Music connects us and brings us into intimate relationships with each other.  It increases companionship and closer contact with others.

"It's a marvelouis healing force in our society.  Music also speaks to our hopes and dreams.  As with all art it is about expressing oneself via a different and unique language that allows the option of self expression."
        ~ Keith Fraser

It reduces isolation, triggers memories of happier times and, through diaphramic breathing, lengthens the breath and alters how we feel. 

Music and joy are closely inter-related!
