Training sessions for care staff, activity leaders and other practitioners who want to gain skills, knowledge and experience in leading music based activities with older people. Led by Matthew Laurie, part of the Creative Ageing programme.
Repertoire is a key ingredient necessary for the provision of musical interaction. During this session we will explore the common repertoire of songs that 'everyone knows' along with some more interactive songs that allow for improvised celebration of music-makers. Participants will leave with more confidence to lead sessions and deeper understanding of how to create rapport with the people they support.
