Clients and team members at Arcare Warriewood enjoyed a special piano performance by client Bill Woods, a passionate pianist.
Dr. Bill Woods has played the piano all his life and it is a passion of his as he continues to play almost every day.
He enjoys playing in our piano room and the other clients enjoy hearing him play as his music brings people together.
‘Music speaks what cannot be expressed, it soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, it flow from the above to the soul,’ a client shared.
Bill was a doctor by profession, but his first love will have to be his piano.
For our tribute to Vera Lynn during Happy Hour, Bill specially learnt a few compositions and performed for everyone.
The clients were more than happy to sing along as they sat back and enjoyed the melodic tunes.
Music can be appreciated by everyone and it also has the ability to evoke powerful emotional responses.
‘Sometimes music is the only medicine my heart and soul needs,’ a client commented.
