WHAT WE DO
We offer a variety of different services, these include:
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.
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.
Intergenerational Care Home Choirs
Our choir project aims to connect and empower residents and carers through music. We pride ourselves on the fact that our services are much more than ‘entertainment’; our work is underpinned by research in music sociology and our clients value our expert knowledge.
We provide high quality, research-based services; building strong relationships with our clients and beneficiaries, and their needs are at the heart of everything we do.
Music Workshops and Performances
High quality music workshops and performances for older adults in care settings. Our workshops are interactive, and reminiscence based, using a variety of percussion instruments and resources to spark reminiscence discussions, promoting social interaction, self-confidence and stimulating the brain all led by Music Therapists.
We are passionate about creating a positive and sustainable impact on all our participants.
All our services aim to benefit all communities within the health and education sector as the work: shares cultural and musical understanding, increases the access to music-making, encourages informal music-making at homes, promotes sustainability by including volunteering and/or staff development and lastly raises self-confidence and self-esteem of participants.
