About Us

I’m Soul Inc enables people of all ages and (dis)abilities to harness the power of music for health and happiness through technology. In so doing, it celebrates the human spirit and promotes a more compassionate and inclusive society. Music has therapeutic power - it invigorates the soul, rewires the brain and promotes creativity, movement, and connection with others. But many people cannot access this power the conventional way due to illness or disabilities (physical, learning, emotional). The ability to express oneself through music, alone or with a group enhances self-esteem that will spread to all other aspects of life. It will also impact the lives of caregivers and the community at large. No music background is needed.

 

Our Mission 

Enabling ALL to Harness the Power of Music for Health and Happiness through Technology and Celebration.

Our Vision

A Celebration of the Human Spirit and a more Compassionate and inclusive World.
