“I was thoroughly impressed and pleased by the workshop. I think that it brought people out of their comfort zone and encouraged them to experience themselves and each other in a very different way than what they are used to. I would recommend it again.”

“My name is Nick and I am special education teacher who works with children in grade 3 and who are on the autism spectrum.  Louise ran a one-hour session for three of our special need’s classes (18 students, 9 staff).  It was amazing!  The session was well structured with a variety of activities and we were able to use quality instruments.  The session brought everyone out of their shell- adults included!  Our students’ personalities all came out as they are given the space to explore and express themselves as they please.  Teaching creativity is difficult, but I can safely say that our session brought about much creativity.  It was a very meaningful experience and afterwards, all of our students were more productive, calmer and seemed happier throughout the day!

The 20-minute improvisation portion of the session is something I will remember for a long time!  The smiles, movements, voices, rhythms, laughter, focus and positive energy was something truly beautiful.  We were connected through rhythm on a level that can only be achieved through art (creative expression).  It inspired us all, even those who have no musical training.  I think letting loose like that is so important for us as human beings as it teaches us just that, how to be.  I have been inspired to bring in more music/movement activities into my class.  I really appreciate the experience that Louise facilitated for us.”
