Adrian on Song for better health

30 Mar 2012

By Lowri Stafford of Canterbury Times

They say music is good for the soul, but professional organist Adrian Bawtree believes its benefits reach much further. Armed with his trusty music box, which he loads with backing tracks created in the "Man Shack" at the bottom of his garden, the 43-year-old travels to care homes and hospitals around the country as part of his work with the charity, Sing for Your Life.

The singing sessions, which are a more interactive form of Karaoke, have been shown to improve the health and wellbeing of dementia patients, Parkinson's sufferers and autistic teenagers.

Adrian invited Lowri Stafford to the home he shares with wife Victoria, 37, sons Matthew, eight, and Theo, five, and Rosie the sausage dog in Bekesbourne Lane, Littlebourne, to share his Canterbury Tale.
