Interested in having an intergenerational music project in your community? Want to gain skills to do it yourself, or bring in a team of artists and staff with specialist expertise? IMM can help.

Our staff and senior artists can provide training to suit your organisation’s needs – whether you are just getting started on intergenerational arts or have many years of experience but would relish some fresh ideas.  These highly practical intergenerational training sessions aim to help staff and students put across key musical skills and concepts in a fun and engaging way.

Skill enhancement training aims to work with healthcare professionals in care settings and carers in the community to have the confidence and skills to use person-centred music with older adults, particularly people living with dementia. We provide one day training for healthcare professionals to learn how to use person-centred music activities particularly personalised playlists with people living with dementia, and we provide ongoing support to help the care homes embed personalised music into their care provision.

We have designed and are able to deliver training days and workshops for artists, teachers, community development workers, care home activities organisers and managers.  For further details please contact please contact us at IMM.

The Intergenerational training was so much fun, I came away with a clear understanding and some new ideas of how I could use music in our care home and with our local families.
