Dr Hirini Melbourne

Thanks Dr Hirini Melbourne,

Waikato University

Hirini encouraged me to write songs even though I couldn’t play a musical instrument, saying my voice was my instrument.
He taught me about the esoteric realm of Raukatauri which was to inspire the naming of my daughter and the eventual establishment of the Raukatauri Music Therapy Centre helping children with special needs through the power of music.  I feel incredibly privileged to have had him as my lecturer.
