CS, I think Claire is not living at home. She's in a center of some kind.

Claire, I believe you need to figure out what exactly you want. To play folk/blues in your room? To go to concerts? To have performers come to the center? Then figure out who can get you that (family, social worker, center management) and talk to them.

I suspect that day-to-day carers brush off your comments about music because they don't have the knowledge or authority to get you what you want, and so they are being defensive. Unfortunately, that just comes off as obnoxious.
