Peter Roberts is an Australian musician who doesn’t normally work in the public eye. He doesn't often entertain or play his music on stage, yet he's played his harp to several thousands of people and had a lasting impact on each and every one of them.
For over twenty years Peter has used his music in hospital settings playing for tiny, premature babies in the “Special Care” nursery”, for those undergoing surgery, those dealing with cancer treatment and those who are facing the very last moments of their lives.
In order to do this work Peter opted to give up a lucrative career as a businessman mid-life and retrain overseas in a little-known specialty that involves playing live music to ease pain and give solace to people facing their very last days (music-thanatology). His journey into this work was featured on this ABC TV Australian Story documentary entitled “ Heaven Sent”.
