Led by a professional music therapist, each project aims to equip people working at the heart of care with the skills, resources, experience and confidence to run music sessions independently.
A music therapist trains caregivers in their place of work over the course of six to nine weeks. Working in partnership, we identify project aims and who will take part. Through regular music sessions, our music therapist demonstrates how music can create positive change. Gradually over the course of the project, caregivers take over delivery of these sessions until they are running them independently. You can request a project here.
