Music Therapy

Music has an important place at Kingfisher. For students who struggle to communicate, music is often an important access to emotion. Most of us have an inherent appreciation of music, and this takes on more intensity when other forms of communication are difficult for us.

Steve Pratley has been visiting us weekly for many years now, his enthusiasm and engagement with the students makes his visits very popular with students and staff alike - he works class by class with his guitar, and knows the students well.

We also have visits from orchestras and quartets that perform classical music in our main hall and interact with, and adapt to our unique environment.
