Gong & Sound Therapy (GST) 

"A Magical World of Sound, Relaxation, Restoration & Healing"  

- Dean Telano

"Our training approach is to teach children how to play different types of Gongs and instruments. We believe, a multicultural Gong ensemble can add depth, dimension, and lots of playful energy, when learning." 

- Dean Telano

"It has been found that musical vibrations make their impact upon the entire body, being picked up by the nerves, spinal column, and even by the bones. This is why people who are deaf can react to music. It has also been demonstrated that music affects the pulse, respiration, and blood pressure; but it’s deepest effects, and those from which most of it’s curative properties are derived, are mental and emotional."  - Doren Antrim (Music Is Medicine)
