Music Mentor: Day Program Aide

Bring a SMILE    to Someone's Face!

Get people UP and MOVING!
 

I think music in itself is healing.
It's an explosive expression of humanity.

It's something we are all touched by;
No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music.

                                                                            --Billy Joel
