Intergenerational Music Projects for schools, colleges and universities
Interactive and educational intergenerational music programmes for children and the elderly by bringing local communities together. Each carefully designed project brings together at least two or three different age groups who might not normally come into regular contact, with focus on fun musical interaction. We are incredibly passionate about what we do and are seeing huge benefits in sharing music across the generations.
Intergenerational Music Hubs
The Intergenerational Music Making Hub is a weekly session that aims to bring together the community in unique music making workshops.
A morning of musical expression, creativity, exploration and both personal and professional development facilitated through artistically driven activities. We are working alongside Age UK Surrey and ACM to promote wellbeing, community cohesion and to bridge the gap between generations through activities designed and led by music therapist, specialist artists, local musicians and university music students.
These hubs not only tackle loneliness and social isolation within our communities but also create partnerships to capture learning; offer immediate and long term opportunities for socialisation, volunteering and support and create links with local systems.
Jungle Jive and our Christmas Singalong have been the first in our series of Intergenerational music concerts for 3 months to 100+ at the Electric Theatre, Guildford.
Bringing generations together through fun and interactive concerts. A series of intergenerational concerts bringing together local schools, colleges and care homes in Surrey and beyond.
