  1. This is a very nice website, well done Noa, it showed up very light on my computer, not sure if it is my font or yours. WTG 😀

  2. Noa,
    I wish you so much success in your new business. Your website is great and what you will achieve in helping so many people is wonderful. I have a mother with servere dementia and I know she would have loved therapy like this.

    • Thank you, Rosemary. I’m looking forward to what the future has in store for Helping Harmonies! Does your mother currently listen to any music for leisure? If not, music from her younger years (teens through twenties) is often deemed most suitable as a source of comfort and relaxation for persons who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease or similar conditions having to do with the decline of cognitive ability. Wishing you all the best.
