He went on record in the 1982 BBC2 Documentaries on Music Therapy as saying: ”I would not consider any child to have been assessed unless that assessment included music therapy. I would like to see a significant development of music therapy throughout the country, and every centre such as this one should have a music therapist on the staff.”
