Our Unique "Baby Music Experience"

Our Unique "Baby Music Experience" has two ingredients.

We discovered that large groups of harps, or cellos, make the loveliest sounds when everyone plays in an almost totally relaxed fashion, much more so than when playing solo or in an orchestra.

This, when combined with the extraordinary aura of richness and depth which emerges when so many of the same instrument play together, imparts an irresistible sense of tranquillity and repose to the listener.

When we played this music to babies and youngsters they drifted off almost immediately, with a smile. But we found that not only could we calm them at sleep time or when they were anxious, we could also engage them when in a receptive mood.

And we're delighted when our music is enjoyed by adults too, for relaxation and entertainment!
