We are planning to build on our previous education programmes in which Music 4 Wellbeing practitioners shared their experiences and expertise with teachers, care staff/health professionals, family carers and arts practitioners.

Education programmes to date have involved over 400 workforce professionals and carers who have attended short training courses on embedding creative experiences into their professional/family interactions.

It is not necessary to have any prior musical/art training. We welcome enthusiasts, experts, novices, shy people and extroverts – anyone who wants to experiment with sound, music, movement, dance and other creative activities and to take their newly learnt skills back to their workplace for the benefit of all.

If you’ve ever been told, you can’t sing/dance/create – don’t believe it – join one of our courses and experience the joy of your creative self!
