We work for the community

Music for All provides music making activities as a form of therapy to improve mental health and physical wellbeing. We aim to empower, connect and bring joy through music to those in challenging circumstances. We work with people of all ages and backgrounds; adults with physical, learning and developmental disabilities, people with dementia, people experiencing isolation and depression, children with special educational needs, disabilities and refugee families.

Playing music together brings us into the present moment, providing relief from everyday worries and physical ailments. There is academic evidence of how music is highly beneficial to reducing stress and releasing the happy chemicals in the brain, reducing cortisol, increasing dopamine and serotonin.

Who we’ve helped

The Music for All project has been a huge success so far, we have received positive feedback from all the organisations we are working with: Alzheimer’s Society, Age UK, Endike Community Care, 5Senses, Your Life, Refugee Council and Kids. 

If we are successful in the People’s Project this is what we will do with the funding:

  • Provide weekly music sessions – inclusive, therapeutic and educational, tailored to each group from Sound therapy, Singing, Drum Circle, West African, Soundscape and Gamelan. 
  • Deliver two Sound Therapy sessions per month to the staff, carers and families of all our groups. 
  • Develop an album of original music from each organisation, mastered in a professional studio.
  • Each organisation can then sell their album to raise money for their groups.
  • Saturday Music Club – Free activity for all participants, carers, staff and families.
  • Employ local music facilitators and support musicians.
