An Introductory ‘Music in Healthcare’ Workshop delivered by Training Notes in partnership with Create Louth, the Arts Service of Louth County Council, will take place on 15 August 2018 at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda as part of the Trad@Heart music in healthcare festival. 

Training Notes is a training programme within Kids’ Classics that offers training courses and mentoring opportunities to musicians and healthcare professionals.

This free introductory workshop presentation will explore the wealth of approaches to music-making in healthcare settings by Kids Classics’ professional hospital musicians, the potential benefits of interactive music-making to help improve the quality of life for patients, and the necessary hospital musician skill-set required to work appropriately in healthcare settings. It will be an open style presentation with an opportunity for questions and involvement by the attendees.
