Participatory, inclusive music making is a powerful approach to meeting the needs of people at risk of social isolation due to a communication disability. Underpinned by the practice of Intensive Interaction, person-centred dementia care and research into rapport and empathy, Musical Interaction is a very immediate way to promote wellbeing through creativity and social engagement.
I have worked with people and music since 2001 and have worked extensively in the UK and abroad in both education settings, residential services and hospitals providing care for people living with dementia, autism, learning disabilities, mental health problems.
