All of our tutors are exceptional practitioners and experienced trainers. Many have published books on their subjects and have excellent reputation in the world of special needs.
Music, Dance, Massage, Drama, Art and Story are expressive arts which transcend formal, spoken language therefore by-passing the need for cognitive processing. Experienced at an emotional, intuitive level, these art forms are accessible to everyone irrespective of ability.
