+ Sound Healing
Do you love music? Have you dreamed of recording songs? Have you wondered what it would be like to make a music video? Have you experienced the wonder of animating? Have you experienced virtual reality?
Are you a musician or creative looking for assistance or collaboration or looking for a producer or video editor for that song or music video you're working on?
Do you even just want to listen to some sound healing music?
Did you know you can still do all of this online from anywhere in the world?
Does your life need a new sense of vitality, creativity and hope?
WeCreate+ helps gives anyone of any age, ability and need, a sense of emotional and mental wellbeing and fun.
The impact can reach into all areas of your life, providing you with an outlet to creatively express feelings through music, words and creative technology.
WeCreate+ provides a safe environment where you can’t make mistakes.
And this can all be done online.
WeCreate has been running for 5 years, and has been Steve's music, songwriting, recording, virtual reality, animation, music video teaching and collaboration service for children and young adults with all needs including Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, social and emotional difficulties.
Now Steve is expanding the service to WeCreate+ StevePaulSounds With Sound Healing (catchy name, let's just call it WeCreate+) with an extra focus on producing music and videos for or with creatives.
WeCreate+ StevePaulSounds with Sound Healing
Steve offers a wide range of creative, listening and watching services for all ages for everyone, with a specialism in helping people with conditions such as Autism, social and emotional difficulties, and ADHD.
WeCreate+ is the ambitious in-development expansion of WeCreate, welcoming musicians at all stages in their career to collaborate with Steve, enabling online collaboration sessions, encouraging songs with positive messages.
Steve is training to be a Sound Healer, so can work using sound healing instruments, traditional instruments and music technology, for listening, playing, songwriting and recording.
Sound healing is a natural, gentle, non-invasive form of vibrational energy medicine, using instruments such as crystal singing bowls (that you can see in the picture), chimes, handpans, frame drums, tuning forks etc.
Other opportunities can be the focus or combined with the music, such as making videos, learning and creating animations, using virtual reality for making art, animation and 360 VR videos, and learning other creative software.
A new focus of the service is to create pieces of music and videos that have positive messages or bring healing to the service user and/or others.
When creating music, you can work from a music project with all Steve's best music samples and software instruments inside to use as starting inspiration, e.g. take a guitar part from a song you like to add to yours, or remix Steve's work.
WeCreate+ will offer anyone to submit poems or lyrics for free to be considered for use by the service users and most of these will be posted on social media.
Heal & Create aims to link up with charities in the near future, and sell the music created with a goal of having the music placed in TV and film.
Steve is collaborating with other sound healers for sessions where the focus is for you to listen and watch and will be making virtual reality sound healing experiences in audio and video.

"I have seen children totally transformed by creating music with Steve. They love the sessions and form a wonderful relationship with him that impacts on their whole life, making them happy and positive.
The effects go way beyond the music created. I highly recommend Steve."
Melanie Coberman (Special Needs Teacher, Binoh, Norwood)
“I’m Mordechai Kestecher, a screenwriter, lyricist and poet. I met Steve as a music teacher when I attended the Binoh unit in Hendon during which time I hadn't had proper schooling since age 13. With the help of Steve's laptop and equipment, I recorded my first hit single "I might" which he worked on perfecting for years after I'd left.
Steve and I collaborated on and off since my time in Binoh, he went on to help me master my writing skills, helped produce and edit my only successful film, and made an improved version of I Might (I Might Too), together with a music video.
Not only has Steve paid an unmeasurable contribution to my skills. I don't recall ever successfully producing anything without his direct help“
Mordechai Kestecher (Former student)
"I really like Steve because he can be funny and he always wants to make things the most professional. He's very patient unlike me who just wants to get everything done. My favourite thing is Flourish Studio by far which makes data visualisations. I recommend Steve!"
Theo S. (8)
"Steve has been working with my 8 year old son for over a year now. Initially we asked Steve to help my son create alternate future mapping movies, and although Steve was unfamiliar with this type of animation, he researched the subject and taught himself how to make them so he could teach Theo. With Steve's assistance, Theo has produced some fabulously creative and complex animations. He's learned how to use various animation and editing software programmes such as Pixelmator and Final Cut Pro. As Theo's interests change, Steve adapts what he does with him. They've created Theo's version of flight tracker as well as an online board game involving City Skylines. Most recently, Steve has taught Theo how to use data visualisation software, Flourish Studio, so that he can create his own moving bar charts.
Steve is calm and patient with Theo who always looks forward to his sessions with Steve. We usually have to tear Theo away when they finish as he's having so much fun and always wants to do "one more thing"."
Jenny S. (Mother of current student Theo)
"I had the pleasure of attending a sound healing with StevePaul. The experience was extremely relaxing and profound. He is extremely professional and in touch with his deep sensitivity so he can encounter the other needs. I felt the energy flowing smoothly inside my body when he was playing all different instruments around me. I felt safe and free of experience my expansion. Definitely he created a safe space for me to be vulnerable and be received in many levels. Highly recommend it."
