Becky Eden-Green is a Music and Health Apprentice for 2015-2016 with practice based at Leicester Children’s Hospital, Leicester Royal Infirmary.
Becky is primarily a clarinettist, saxophonist and singer, although she has been known to turn her hand to flute, guitar, ukulele, tin whistle and bass guitar. After a false start as a philosopher, she graduated from Leeds University with a BA in music, a teaching qualification, two Edinburgh Fringe sellout shows with the Leeds-based jazz-funk band add9 and a thirst for participating in as many musical opportunities as physically possible.
Since then, she has been performing at festivals and events with various bands on the folk music circuit including the jazz ceilidh band Steamchicken and the funk/Irish dance project Sciorr:Staged. She keeps her ear in by attending music sessions around her home town of Sheffield. She has continued to teach in various settings and could not help noticing the benefits of music for young people. Making and teaching music has taken Becky to Poland, Spain, Cyprus, Uganda, Australia and, more recently, Fiji and Vietnam.
“The OPUS music in healthcare course has shown me another way in which I can make and share the benefits of music, and I can’t wait to work with the inspiring OPUS teams and take on this new challenge.”
