COMMUNITY  &  SELF NOURISHMENT

We believe in the value of music-making for all! Our commitment to encouraging growth and nurturing community through music-making takes us from the focused work of ‘inviting the art, science and craft of music and healing’, and spins it outwards to experience healing through all the general therapeutic qualities of music, and in particular making music as a way to connect.

Adaptive Music Lessons

We offer music lessons – whether vocal or basic instrumental - that will be fully adapted to meet the client needs.

Supplemental Music Lessons

For musicians and performers looking for support to address performance anxieties and/or to express and process emotionally. We will work with you to find your own solutions through knowing yourself and your ‘inner music child’ better.

Gentle Vinyasa Flow: Mondays 6pm with Alyssa

Join Alyssa for a gentle evening flow to release from your day and feel ready for the week. Take time to connect with your breath, your body and your beautiful self. We will engage with an hour of movement, followed by half an hour of meditation.

You can stay for meditation or wrap up your time at the end of our movement.

CHOIRS & SINGING ENSEMBLES

We are involved in a number of ensemble singing initiatives, ranging from choirs in the wider community through to focused therapeutic singing for specific needs and populations. E.g. promoting and facilitating singing and signing choirs as an inclusive shared performance opportunity; holding vocal workshops using the ‘natural voice’ approaches and working with the breath.

“I used to think that music was like lace upon a garment, nice to have but not necessary. I have come to believe that music is absolutely essential to our community life.”
