Our group of music therapists found their time with Simon to be incredibly valuable and all of the feedback that I’ve received about his workshop has been very positive. He provided a great balance between practical drumming interventions and discussion around topics such as group dynamics and therapeutic music making. The workshop not only gave us strategies for working with our clients, but also provided us with a great team music-making experience!
