Earlier this week I was trying to explain why I like to have as much of my music with me as possible on my mp3 player. The best analogy I could come up with was that it’s like medicine – you need the right medicine and dosage for different ailments – you don’t take indigestion pills for a headache for example. And at any given time during a day I could need something to help me celebrate being happy, something to calm me if I’m anxious, something the blast away a bad day etc… I realise that this may not be the case for everyone, but it works for me.
Anyway, that leads me to a blatant plug for Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy who really do use music to break down barriers and change people’s lives. Please follow the link to read about their amazing work and if you are so inclined you can make a donation too.
