Music Making

PERCUSSION FUN: ONE-TO-ONE - Intensive Interaction and Musical Improvisation

Especially suitable for those with profound and multiple learning difficulties. Any movement or sound a client makes can be used to improvise with and to make music, employing a full range of musical instruments, computer technology and vocal techniques. I travel to you in your home or care setting, bringing everything we need with me.

MENCAP says:
  • "Making sure that people with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD) have the opportunity to take part in the arts is very important for many reasons. Art is an integral part of the human experience, and it can help people to get involved in their community, find new ways to communicate, and increase their self-confidence."
