Matthew uses music to create opportunities for wellbeing through positive communication, interaction and creative expression. Sessions involve everything from sing-alongs, drumming and rhythm games, computer music, instrument-making, sound bathing and improvisation, and focus on fun, dynamic play and reciprocity.
Matthew had this to say about his online sessions: ”These are challenging times but in the absence of physical contact we can still lever the capacities of music to foster personal growth online. Since the first lockdown I have delivered over 400 online music sessions!” He has made a short video with more information.
Here’s what carers who help their clients access his online service have to say:
- ”Matthew’s person-centered approach to his online sessions creates a safe space for us to explore soundscapes and feelings in a fun, sensitive and compassionate way”
- ”My Cousin has been having music sessions with Matthew for over 4 years & absolutely loves them! Being able to continue them virtually since March has been great for him, it gives him something to look forward to twice a week and a sense of normality whilst being stuck indoors.”
- ”Matthew’s online sessions have been a godsend for us. During lockdown, especially, they were the absolute highlight of our week. Matthew comes highly recommended by us and many others – we can’t imagine life without him now!”
