St Roses' School which caters for children and young people with physical disabilities in Stroud has recently introduced a new music initative. Most of the pupils at the school have learning and communication difficulties and a number have complex health needs. 

Gary from Reaching Thru Music has been working with a small group of young people from St Thomas and St Stephens' classes and by combining music, intensive interaction, body harmony and music techniques delivered in a fun way he has been able to stimulate, relax and promote interaction.  

Not only have the students really enjoyed the trial sessions, staff say they have been "astounded" at the responses from the students.
