I had the pleasure of going live with Sally Chance and Matt from Turtle Dance Music in the USA! We met Matt when we toured to New York with ‘This Baby Life’ show. All these years later, we reconnected and did a live to facebook video of some songs and dance play activities for children.
I have worked with director and choreographer Sally Chance for many years as a live musician. I have been lucky enough to travel the world with Sally and her company to New York, Korea, Scotland, and all over Australia. Sally is incredibly innovative and is a leader internationally in creating dance theatre productions for very young audiences. Sally was recently interviewed for Haven – a family lifestyle magazine. Hope you enjoy the read!

So excited to announce that my interview with Daniel Coates from ‘The Sound Healing Podcast’ is now up and available. Daniel and I have a chat about sounds for healing in general, my sound healing ensemble Harmonic Project, and I also talk more about the work I do at Flinders Medical Centre, Adelaide, with the Sounds for Relaxation Program.
Love Heather 😀
Here’s a message from Daniel himself…
“This week on my Sound Healing Podcast I have a special guest, my very good friend and amazing Sound Healer and Singer/Songwriter Heather Frahn. Heather and I discussed many aspects of Sound in Healing including the use of Sound Healing in hospitals and studies that have been done on cellular responses to sound in humans. It was a fascinating interview I hope you enjoy it. (Will be on ITUNES soon, for now the link to my Website)
