What parents say

“Thank you so much. We really enjoyed coming and found it great fun”

“My son asks for music time nearly every day after school. He’s using the Hello and Goodbye songs to say goodbye and greet people. Music is great for calming him and he constantly smiles through the group”

“Loved the choice of instruments that he could try”

“It was inclusive of our needs despite [our child] being much younger and less able than classmates”

What adults say

“The sessions taught me new skills – linking visualisation with music. Now when I listen to that music, it takes me back there, relaxes me, and keeps me there, and looking at the drawings makes me smile”
—Mindful Music participant

“Mindful Music has really helped me a lot. I’m looking for things that are uplifting in my life… and I’m finding it easier to find them, focus and feel calmer”
—Mindful Music participant

“I like coming to music because [the teacher] makes it fun. And singing Disney songs help me sing and laugh”
—Community music participant

“I like the whole group. We’ve got an amazing teacher and it’s made me learn how to sing in public”
—Community music participant
