Music has been a social glue throughout human evolution.  Sharing our stories, our news, our emotions through song is what makes us human.  Music communicates in ways words are unable to. It unearths memories and feelings that we may have forgotten we ever knew - or have yet to discover.


The power of music to enhance and stimulate brain function is well documented.  Its mix of pattern recognition, rhythm, language and emotional elements means music stimulates brain functions across all regions. It’s also fantastic fun, and a gateway to emotions & memories that may not get acknowledged or expressed at any other time.

Before it was an art form, music was doing something fundamental about teaching us how to respond to other people
