"I regard music therapy as a tool of great power in patients of neurological disorders - Parkinson's and Alzheimer's, because of its unique ability to organize or reorganize cerebral function when it has been damaged"
-Oliver Sacks, M.D.
"It's time to stop thinking of the drum as a musical instrument...start thinking of it as a unifying tool for every family, a wellness tool for every retiree, and an educational tool for every classroom"
"Where words fail, music speaks."
-Hans Christian Andersen
