Murray is passionate about music as a means of person-centred care. Here is what he says about his work with Room 217:
Having had a very hands-on experience with the palliative care of my mother and now with dementia in the family my interest in the work of Room 217 Foundation in music care is far more than academic. It was a very natural fit for me to be become involved.
