My Music Ignites My Soul
“To bring young people with music appreciation and digital skills together with seniors, who have their own music landscape and memories, to shape experiences, moods and memories for the seniors throughout Aotearoa New Zealand”
Our theme song:
TO Pauline- a shining example of holding your dream close and never saying never. As you said on Saturday you are passing the baton, our commitment to you is to take it and not fumble the changeover. You will forever be the patron and mentor of the music and relationships that will be ignited.
Pauline, I don’t think there are words in any language to express me gratitude for what you have created to enhance the wellbeing of Aotearoa. I don’t even think you realise the huge impact that you have had in some many peoples lives and how much this programme is going to mean for young and old and many generations to come…. but you need to know, that you are a game changer and I do appreciate your trust and love. Thank You, you are amazing!
My mother who was a trained opera singer loved music, however after a stint in hospital where she experienced delirium, both her singing and conversation diminished.
We moved her to a new care centre which ran a “My Tunes” class explaining the programme and its inspirer. Mum recognised Pauline’s name immediately as her granddaughter’s marriage celebrant and began singing along to the Sound of Music. It was one of her favourite tunes and she knew all the words.
From this occasion, Mum ‘refound’ her voice and her love of music. We can’t thank Pauline enough for developing this programme and promoting this to our more mature citizens to allow them to relive some of the joys of life that we often put aside as we grow older.
Thanks to our wonderful supporters:
