Together in Sound

IN RESPONSE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, TOGETHER IN SOUND SESSIONS ARE CURRENTLY BEING DELIVERED ONLINE TO ALL EXISITING PARTICIPANTS.
Applications for new participants will be open over the summer for sessions beginning in October. Please email togetherinsound@saffronhall.com to register to receive information when applications are open.

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
