Mentally disabled band wants to share!

l have for the past 20 years been using music as a tool for developing the weak and strong areas of social behavior for the mentally disabled. During this time l have gathered a vast knowledge and gained a lot of experience in this field but l`m always on the lookout for new methods and ideas. One of my bands "Popcorn" have achieved international status this link also tells along what lines l am working. l am sure that there are many in the same situation as myself and therefore a network of people in this field could only be beneficial for all, exchanging experiences and methods, visit exchanges and how about a CD with a mentally disabled band from each country, could be fun. l am a social pedagogue and special music teacher of English birth but now living in Denmark. Looking forward to hearing from you at: ISME Member Brian Laurie. ================ 8.DENMARK - Music in Denmark *************************************************** Back copies of ISME Electronic Postcards are available to Members Only at this direct link.
