Thank you for subscribing to the blog off the back of the M4H bulletin shout out! Please tell people where we are now because we’ll be posting all sorts of good stuff.
We’re sharing some music time with people at our concert next Sunday 30 June in Manchester, RNCM, 7.30pm, as you’ll have seen.
It’s been a very difficult year in some ways but very positive in others. Does that sound familiar? Anyway, we’re back in the room. Ros Hawley has written a chapter for a book on community music making, edited by Phil Mullen and other important thinkers in this sphere. Ros will be telling us more on that soon as it’s due to be published.
Ros and Mark Fisher went to Glasgow a week last Friday with Dr Joan Livesley from Salford School of Nursing and Midwifery to present their work in the wards of Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital at a nursing conference – through interactive means!
Tom Sherman did an extra session at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital with a young fellow he’s been working with who asked him to come back to develop their ideas.
Cecily and her duo partner Gemma played for Stroke awareness week in Ward 31, doing a lovely mixture of interactive pieces, including an improvised work featuring…. slightly inebriated fairies? Cecily, more on that from you in due course!
Ros and Mark were in outpatients at MRI today in the busy clinic areas, a new place in which to work which we’ll report on soon.
Ros, Mark and I are at the Nowgen Centre tomorrow all day tomorrow at a Young People’s Careers in Healthcare Event organised by the Trust with visits from local schools (about 1000 people of school age across the day) – representing the fact that music in health and social care settings is something we can all benefit from.
Tally ho! And, if you’d like to spread the word about this site, Music for Health Crowd Funding Randomised Controlled Trial we’d be grateful!
