Music Speaks to SUPERFIRE frontman – Jamie

The music therapy experience is often unheard. Accent Music Therapy is pleased to share personal stories of those touched by the power of music.

Our next feature story is of Jamie. Jamie is a 26-year old with Cerebral Palsy.

Pierre, Jamie’s father, tells us about their musician son.


Tell us about Jamie.

Jamie is charming and warm. Jamie had a stroke just before birth, but was undiagnosed until he was about 11 months old when we noticed he wasn’t hitting the normal childhood milestones. Now, Jamie is hemiplegic, which means one side of his body is significantly impacted (weak), and he suffers from seizures, which are primarily controlled with medication.

Jamie is an outgoing and inquisitive young man who loves music, and wants to form a musical trio with his sister, and I, as we, too, are accomplished musicians.

Initially, as his parents wanted Jamie to play an instrument that would help with movement and strength, and that would require reciprocal actions, Jamie started drum lessons. He learned to hold a beat and became quite good, playing with his father and sister.

 When Jamie was a client at Erinoak, he met Bill. Jamie and Bill always talked music, and so Bill invited Jamie to a band, Superfire, that Bill was creating at Erinoak. Jamie loved the idea and started to write songs for the band, which is still an outlet for his creativity. Jamie’s confidence has soared since becoming involved in Superfire.


Why did you consider Music Therapy service?

Music therapy helps Jamie improve his voice projection, timing and song creation. Jamie’s goal now is to improve his stage performance, which will further develop his confidence.


What were your expectations of Music Therapy before you started?

Knowing Bill’s success with existing clients, we were very optimistic for Jamie’s experience with music therapy.


As a result of Music Therapy, what results have you witnessed?

Jamie’s confidence has soared, and his timing, voice projection, and stage presence have all significantly improved. Jamie and his fellow Superfire band members perform at local schools and present their message of inclusion. Their performance is inspiring. We are all very proud of the achievements of Jamie and his band mates, and as Jamie continues to work with AMT, we expect more improvements.


What has your experience been like with Accent Music Therapy?

Bill is a highly committed and patient professional, and Jamie is very comfortable working with him. Bill challenges Jamie without any pressure so Jamie is improving in all areas.

  14. I have been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours as of late, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It’s lovely value enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the internet
    shall be much more helpful than ever before.
