About the MindHarp
MindHarp® has been created by Mark Smulian and Stewart Redpath. Their dream was to create a tool for all those people in the world who never believed they could make or play music, with the belief that this would lead to a healthier, happier, safer and gentler world.
Through a chance encounter with the Dementia Action Alliance in 2017, Mark and Stewart discovered how music plays such an important role in the care of people living with dementia. This led to an introduction to the Peggy Dodd Centre in Bath which is a day care centre for people living with dementia. This seemed like a good place to start.
Since then, Mark and Stewart have expanded their work in a widening range of care-related applications.
The MindHarp is gaining traction and recognition amongst domestic and professional carers.
In development is the ‘phone-based’ version for focusing on well-being through music.

Thanks Stewart & Mark. I have been with two residents 1-1 for some mini mindharp time. I just had someone who has been non verbal for a few weeks now speak to me and laugh at me. It was a heartwarming, beautiful moment.
Thanks both –its amazing!
