Music is good for our well being!
Engaging with music is undoubtedly beneficial to our health. This has become more obvious to me over the recent years whilst I have been sharing musical experiences with the wider community. Whilst studying on my MA course in Community Music in 2013 I placed much focus on looking at these benefits, and in particular with the elderly and those suffering from Dementia. I also took a look at vocal health care, how to bring good practise into my work, and how to look after my own voice given the demands it is under with all that I do.
Here you will find projects where the health benefits are a big part of the focus within the activities. I am not a trained Music Therapist. I am a sensitive and compassionate Community Musician with a desire to bring supportive and positive experiences into peoples lives, and to which I believe enhances a sense of well being for those who spend time with me.
