BMS has a strong background in music therapy and has been consulting in China with the first private centers for children with special needs –
in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province. Adriana’s training in music therapy was completed in Ireland’s Ballytobin, Co. Kilkenny in the early 90’s with John Clark, a world authority in treating autism. She has worked within a day centre for young adults with special needs in Ennis, Co. Clare, and most recently worked with toddlers and Adults at the Muriosa Foundation, Tullamore in 2018.
As an introduction to musical communication, we start with a musical question and answer activity, and include the use of our voices, improvising sounds, experiencing the Choroi instruments, and the use of the flute throughout storytelling to enhance the soothing environment. The outcome is a short hour of healing experience with sound and creative social interaction.
Adriana customizes her services to the needs of all ages in this area of therapy.
