Co-ordinator - Deirdre Murdoch

Artists with Disabilities

There are currently three members of this team, offering weekly workshops to the Melba Community Residential Units: De Felice, Blue Ridge and Pisces, where the clients are severely disabled. Residents of Monkami also participate in the program.

Sam Derrick, our blind pianist, who also accompanies the Happy Wanderers, alternates between keyboard and guitar and sings all songs with gusto.

Pat and Deirdre are the other members who sing along and encourage the clients to participate as best they can. We all socialise with the clients, the staff, the visitors, the parents and all sing along together. A staff member of the participating houses brings the clients to wherever we are each Tuesday night, in their bus. It is a night we all look forward to. New team members would always be welcome to participate in hands-on music with these special people.
