“ This was the best music course I have ever attended. Kathryn has such a sense of humour and love for the music she uses, her enthusiasm is infectious. I cant wait to get back into class to try these new ideas out. There are many new sensory ideas I had never thought of, and they are all cheap and easy but so effective. Someone who really understands PMLD!”

To truly feel music we need to move and feel the vibrations through our bodies. Please wear comfortable clothes – no stilettos or ball gowns….!
You might want to record some songs – so bring phones/dictaphones etc. Please all bring one small hand drum and a funky percussion instrument of your choice.
