Project Bethlehem has began!
Music Therapist, Liz Coombes and her 'Assistant, musician Hannah McCabe travelled to Bethlehem on the 24th October to deliver a six week skill-sharing project for staff and children at the SOS Children's Village and School. They were accompanied by Project Partners, Canon Paul Miller and Music Therapist, Claire Tillotson who were overseeing the first few days of the project and helping them settle in. All seems to be going really well and we were delighted to hear from the team..."Everyone has been extremely welcoming to us here and the children are so excited! We went to the school today and we were both extremely moved at how accepting and enthusiastic the staff were about our visit and about music therapy. We have already drafted up a plan for this week and I think almost sorted the staff who will take part. We will be going back to the school over the next couple of days to observe the children and classes etc and hopefully get to know everyone a little more."
Liz and Hannah will be posting a regular blog on the website, so please do check in for their up-to-date progress - it promises to be an exciting project!
