Why undertake Creative Music Mentoring?

Music is a vital force that invites us to be unapologetically playful, curious, and deeply connected to ourselves and the world around us. We begin by establishing a solid foundation of joyful play and explore one area of special interest to the participant. We gradually widen the circle over time to create a bigger picture and encounter opportunities to grow in ways we never thought possible.



Music is a potent vehicle for recalibrating ourselves as human beings, refining skills in creative expression, emotional intelligence, self-regulation, communication and other areas crucial to flourishing in our daily lives. By following a path of passionate flow, we become stronger, wiser and brighter than ever.
