Event Details

Music is an effective method of communication, a calming strategy and reminiscence tool.

Favourite tunes can be used to prompt special memories of people, places and events.

It has been proven that when used as therapy, music has positive effects on our physiology, affecting our heart rate, blood pressure and nervous system. Singing in particular decreases agitation, improves comprehension, lifts mood, builds trust and self-confidence.

This half-day experiential workshop is for anyone working in health, aged or community care services and will explore:

  • Developing music programs
  • Setting up a choir
  • Using a playlist in a person-centred approach
  • Use of music in the environment
