I recently traveled to Fiji and I have to say, I had some of my most memorable musical experiences of my life.

Music Therapy & Sound Healing

Music Therapy & Sound Healing


by Dean Quick

Most days I come in to work knowing what to expect, in reference to environment, client behavior, songs I may use, staff member conversations, etc.. I think this is true for most people who have maintained the same job for an extended period. I think there is something in this comfortable frame of mind and space that allows us to burnout...
