I was lucky enough to be invited recently to attended the launch of the report from the Commission on Dementia and Music in the House of Lords.
I was not prepared for how this event would affect me – I felt truly blessed to be surrounded by so many people really fighting to get quality music provision to those who need it. I was also really impressed by the passion of these people and the willingness to actually DO something about it. I look forward to working with the Utley Foundation and others to help move things forward.
I also felt extremely emotional because I really felt for the first time that I am part of something REALLY important AND that the media and government are really starting to take notice, and to finally realise what I have known for years – just how much music helps those with dementia.
I love this work and I am so lucky to have found a job that is a true vocation to me, I hope that I can continue to bring fun to as many people as I can through the joy of singing together.
Congratulations to Lauren who won her school singing competition last week singing “Somewhere only we know.”
She gave the best performance of the song that I’ve seen her do and was so calm and confident.
It was even more sweet as there is some amazing musical talent in her year. She is so happy and her dad and I are thrilled and beyond proud. It was her moment and a huge confidence booster for her.
Your tuition, advice and support made a great deal of difference to her and I would like to let you know how delighted and grateful I am to you for that. Thank you so much.
WELL DONE LAUREN – YOU ARE A STAR!
