Brian Rajas is a polite, studious young man who never gives up. In July 2019 his teacher brought to our attention that he was having black-outs in his lesson and he was subsequently diagnosed with petit-mal epilepsy seizures. Now on medication, his school work has improved, his interaction with his peers is more animated and he is visibly more relaxed and confident. Playing the trombone regulates his breathing and strengthens his diaphragm which in turn sends oxygen more efficiently to his brain.
The intricate aspects of a piece of music helps develop Brian’s ability to focus and complete tasks assigned to him. Music is literally healing Brian from the inside out.
