He has not only regained the weight he lost during his illness but has also thrived with the continued support of Soundabout sessions.

In addition to Soundabout’s online music provision, George now attends weekly in-person Soundabout sessions with other learning Disabled young people.

With the support of specialist music practitioners, George has been practicing strumming a guitar.

Davina highlights the significant strides that George, who is tactile averse, has made in holding and touching things.

George recently helped his carer to peel an orange – a milestone that Davina attributes to George’s continued engagement with Soundabout.

“Music is like a magic wand”, Davina expresses. “George will do anything for music”.
