quotation mark Sophie has very low confidence, low self-esteem and is very self conscious partly due to her weight, lack of mobility and learning difficulties. Sophie is happy to sing and play an instrument in Music Makers, and this is due to the friendly and comfortable family environment that Sara and Jamie have created. They make sure that everybody has a turn, that everybody is fully involved without being ‘measured’ against each other. It is all about the sheer enjoyment of singing and playing rather than being tested on what you have learned.  For that short time each week people can enjoy themselves on an equal basis as their friends without being the only one who can’t do something correctly, or needs ‘extra help’, or even worse is just left to play alone – Music Makers – Francis (Parent)
