This is a wonderful program!

I am disabled and given all of the challenges I face each and every day, I needed to find something meaningful. I desperately needed something that provided a means of escape and allowed me to lose myself for a brief time in something fulfilling and JOYFUL.

Music (in my opinion) is the one GIFT we have all been given in life which can completely and utterly transform us. Music has the power to alter our moods, our perspectives and our hearts.

Through Music and Wellness, PMEL provides a tremendous amount of healing: physically, mentally, psychologically and spiritually and I HIGHLY recommend this program as it has provided much healing for me.

I had the pleasure of taking a recent class with Play Music - Enjoy Life! and it was not only fun, but had me laughing with everyone and really enjoying myself!

I was relaxed and the time just flew by...it definitely helps in forgetting about any stress you might have - I look forward to taking another class soon!

Great classes! I recommend them to everyone I know. Very informative at a good pace (not too slow/quick, and not too involved). Music really helps to stimulate my brain and keep my mental faculties in top working order. I feel energized after each class and look forward to the next one. I have really enjoyed the lessons - not only learning a lot, but meeting others who share my interests.

A good friend of mine lost her home after a wildfire and lost her Dad to Alzheimer's AND her Mom to Cancer all in the last 3 years. I lost my Mom to Cancer 5 years ago. We took these classes and it made my friend smile BIG for the first time in months. God bless these people.

I shared this story last year but I think it's worth repeating! LOVE this Charity!! I've played Guitar for over 20 years and enjoy it even though i dont do it for a living. It relaxes me and makes me "escape" a bad day or rough time. My brother has cancer . Talk about a bad time. We heard about these "escape" piano lessons that are really getting noticed. So, we found out where we could take them together. We really didn't care about learning much about piano playing. We juat wanted to escape talking about his Cancer for a little while. This was a perfect experience! We have only been to two of the four available classes but plan on going to all four. I'm blown away and so is Derek. Wow. Thanks Play Music Enjoy Life!
