It’s a great pleasure to be spending time in Brighton this week, working alongside the lovely Kate Murdoch at the invitation of Rhythmix to deliver a week of Music in Healthcare training to a group of 10 trainees. We have a great group with broad-ranging backgrounds and interests which should make for a really rich week of learning for all of us.
Today was spent in the training room, enjoying music-making together, beginning to generate shared repertoire within the group, and looking at the background to arts/music in health in the UK today. Lots for everyone to take in from today, but a great start. Tomorrow will be another training room day, exploring music-making on a one-to-one basis before heading off to the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital together on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons to make music on the wards with children and young people, their visitors and staff.
Many thanks to Rhythmix and Kate for the invitation. It’s great to be working with you.
