“It is embarrassing to admit that I was so blind to the benefits that music can provide in end-of-life situations. Thank you for opening my eyes through the sharing of your research and talent. We were enlightened and entertained by your presentation. As a result of the inspiration and direction that you provide, our hospice organization will begin utilizing music as a modality to relieve suffering and provide comfort to our patients.”
Dr. Ron Hartsfield, Medical Director, Wiregrass Hospice, Dothan, AL
“As soon as the CDs arrived, my sister, who is a nurse, put on the music. It played continuously for the last three days of my mother’s life. It dramatically eased her pain, comforted family and staff, and brought dignity and calm to those last days. I can’t thank you enough.”
Jim Anderson, Grammy Award Winning Recording Engineer and Music Producer
“Thank you for opening our eyes to the uses of music in our clinical applications.”
Dr. Valentins Krecko, Child Psychiatric Unit, Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and a Diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
"James is an inspiring speaker, and has a wonderful way of sharing his experience and insight into how music can be used in therapeutic settings. He connected very well with our audience made up of volunteers, social services staff, chaplains and others who came just because of an interest in music. His demonstration of music as a healing tool was powerful, even in the context of a fairly large group. I recommend James for any organization interested in exploring the healing power of music."
