Maggie homeIn my early career I worked as a teacher, and latterly with parents and teachers of children with literacy difficulties. While I loved this work, I always felt that music was a missing element in helping people reach their potential, in a maybe more fundamental way.
Since training as a music therapist I have felt really privileged to work with individuals and groups of children and adults with varying disabilities and life situations. So often I have seen how music is able to reach through barriers to the person within, giving them a voice and the opportunity to experience themselves in a new way. Sometimes individuals are provided with the opportunity to experience themselves as ‘spontaneous, creative and joyful’ (Fraser Simpson) – aspects of human experience which some may not be able to experience in any other way.
