Together in Sound

Together in Sound

A free interactive music therapy group in Saffron Walden for those living with dementia and their carers

Saffron Hall and Anglia Ruskin University are pleased to be working in partnership to provide the opportunity for people living with dementia and their carers to attend a 10-week music therapy group.

Together in Sound music therapy groups aim to bring the power of music to those living with dementia. We’ll focus on joint music-making and listening with a goal of supporting communication, relationships, and increasing quality of life through a collaborative group process. There will be opportunities to sing, play and listen to live music together, with weekly sessions led by music therapists and visiting professional musicians from Saffron Hall. The 10-week groups will conclude with an informal sharing and celebration with friends and family toward the end of the 10 weeks.

The next 10-week course of Together in Sound will run in Autumn 2018, please find further details below:
