In March I went to an inspiring concert in Iffley Village Church Hall organised by the music therapists of the Guide Posts Trust. It was simply wonderful. And packed out too! Great to see such support for music therapy and the value of music being recognised. The music therapists themselves played and sang beautifully, but what stuck out for me was the performances of some of the clients – one performing his own composition ‘It’s Music’ which the whole audience joined in with.
The words which spring to my mind are: empowerment, visible, individual, truthful, creative, emotional… there are some things which can only be expressed through music.
