Suitable for both new and experienced facilitators, this workshop facilitated by Embrace Music will explore ways of creating a welcoming and inclusive space for community singing. There will be an emphasis on working with older people, particularly those living with age-related needs, and their carers.
Whether you’re a brand new musical director, have yet to dip your toes in the water, or are an experienced choir leader who is curious to learn more about the Arts & Health approach, you are welcome to take part.
What will be covered in this workshop?
- Finding and adapting a suitable repertoire and warmups
- Special considerations for concerns such as dementia, Parkinson’s and lung health
- Building a concert programme and organising events for your group
- Enhancing your sessions with elements like movement and reminiscence
- Sticking Points: The ins and outs of running a community choir
