“You have no idea what joy you bring to our lives.”

Now in its third year, Together in Sound is a partnership project between Cambridge Institute for Music Therapy Research at Anglia Ruskin University and Saffron Hall Trust, a community-focused concert hall and arts charity in rural Essex in the UK. It delivers group music therapy to people living with dementia and their carers or companions. The project was developed in response to a need expressed by members of the local community for increased access to music for people living with dementia.

Narrative inquiry and practice-based, arts-informed approaches aim to uncover the impact of the music therapy groups for participants. This presentation will focus on the nature of particular music therapy experiences that are impactful.

Presented by Claire Molyneux, senior lecturer in music therapy, findings will be shared in the form of participants’ stories, improvisation and song-writing.

Enjoy complimentary tea, coffee and cookies while you're here.
