Community

I have many years experience working in the community on the Live Music Now! Scheme providing participatory concerts. I have worked in hospitals, special, schools, secure units, homes for the elderly, hospices, day centres, mainstream schools, recovery units, sheltered housing & hospital schools.

I am also a mentor & trainer for Live Music Now! & have worked as a social tutor for Sense UK. I have experience working with people who are deaf/blind & have challenging behaviour & also have experience caring for the elderly.

My concerts provide music to soothe, stimulate & engage. The sessions are tailored for each audience, incorporating live performance & participation.

In each concert, members will have the chance to play the double bass, percussion and sing & sign using SSE (Sign Supported English).

Prices are £60 for a one hour or two 30 minute sessions.
