MUSIC – Halton Harps

Music has long been recognized as an effective tool for physical and mental wellness. I created Halton Harps to offer recreational harp workshops and therapeutic harp music programs in the Halton region and Greater Toronto Area.

Halton Harps brings the soothing and restorative benefits of harp music to community youth programs, Alzheimer’s centres, nursing homes, holistic health retreats, long-term care and assisted living facilities, corporate stress management programs and more.

We create unique workshop programs to celebrate and share music making experiences using our rainbow set of harps with all of you in the community. As a facilitator of the Rainbow of Sound® and Color My World© programs, we have workshops to fit the needs of children, youth, and adults. See for yourself and watch our video.

You’ll enjoy the hands-on harps experience making music, meeting new people and creating new friendships. Relax and enjoy being part of this exclusive harp music making experience.

 Therapeutic Harp – For Your Spiritual Care

Halton Harps brings the soothing sounds of therapeutic harp music to those in hospice, palliative care and hospitalized children including those with special needs (autism, CP, ADHD, down-syndrome etc.) Our unique offering of harp music at the bedside provides peace, comfort, and relaxation to those in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and private residences.

Research has proven that when people experience the sound of relaxing music, they relax which leads to deeper breathing. In turn, this helps in the oxygenation of the body helping people to gain a better sense of well-being. ~Christina Tourin
