The PLAY MUSIC – ENJOY LIFE!  program 

follows the Music and Wellness  philosophy by offering people of all ages a chance to step back from  daily stressors, and encourages self-exploration and expression through  music.

Most people want to learn and play the piano for daily enjoyment and  personal gratification. They want to play for themselves as well as for  their friends and family and to share the joy and exhilaration of the  music they create.

  • Music and Wellness is MORE than about inspiring extraordinary music-making, it’s about inspiring extraordinary life.

  • Music and Wellness is MORE than about exceptional performance, it’s about exceptional support and personal experience.

  • Music and Wellness is MORE than about teaching people to play, it’s about giving them permission to play.

  • The best Music and Wellness facilitators are MORE than just talented  musicians, They are caring, compassionate and intuitive musical guides.

 "Drawing on the great lessons we have learned and  are still learning through the immense wealth of knowledge from our  friends throughout the Music and Medical professions, I have humbly  grown to appreciate the many benefits of Music and Wellness to the basic  Human existence we all share. I know research has been shared that  proves some of these benefits with undoubted accuracy. And it gives me  and our wonderful team great pride in knowing that it is from this huge  basis of knowledge, that we share and promote our program for Music and  Wellness, using the Piano as the vehicle for this proven benefit to  overall health both in mind and body.
Music therapy is a well known and well established healthcare  profession. Music Therapy and the practice of Music and Wellness use  music to address, compliment and improve the cognitive, emotional,  physical, and social needs of adults and children at any age. Music  therapy differs from other music activities and programs because the  Music Therapist selects ways to teach assist and intervene which  influence overall positive human functioning in a positive and desirable  way in order to meet program, treatment and individual goals and  aspirations.
The desire and overall personal need to respond to music has been  theorized to be innate, and although desirable musical performance  abilities are always a pleasant outcome, does not require or at all  depend on any musical training or ability.
Music has been proven to possess a powerful and unique presence among  the professional therapeutic media to enjoy, engage, empower and  sustain the attention and positive response of professional colleagues  and patients alike. Assisted and / or taught by a trained music  therapist, music proves continually to accomplish a varied and  comprehensive array of therapeutic objectives and goals. An important  vital and present portion of our daily social family professional and  interactive lives, music is an extremely unifying, innately present and  forceful power that further proves the JaRic Records slogan ‘bringing  people together through Music’.
People across the world crossing all barriers and lines of geography,  language and culture find Music a primary and enduring source of  entertainment, spiritual enrichment and enlightenment, body and mind  strengthening and an overall awakening and opening of the body’s senses  which therefore enhance and improve our complexity of our life  experiences."
