Miss Kate spoke and performed at Women’s Voices 2019
On Monday Miss Kate spoke at the Soroptomist International Bayside Inc. Women’s Voices event. Cindy Corrie, Founder & CEO of The Sycamore School, was the other presenter of the night.
Miss Kate and Cindy spoke about how their unique experiences challenged society’s assumptions about education and learning.
Miss Kate opened the night with a performance with David Waldie, a long time client of Music Beat Therapy Services. Together they make up the D&K Duo. They sang a couple of favourites – “Shallow” and “A Million Dreams”. Plus they debuted an original song addressing the topic of mental health.
Miss Kate’s talked about how music therapy can be used as an intervention to develop skills required for education, learning and life!
If you are already part of our therapy family, you will know how fantastic how therapists’ are and the great work that they do.
Music therapy can encourage development of skills in areas such as motor planning, cognition, speech and communication, social skills, age appropriate concepts, memory and sequencing, attending to tasks, and sensory and emotional regulation. Among other things of course!
Miss Kate even had everyone doing body percussion exercises which challenged quite a few people.
It was a great night for everyone who attended and Miss Kate got a lot of positive feedback about the fabulous work we do!
