Music making in hospital provides opportunities for communication and interaction, placing patients at the heart of an individualised creative experience.

This workshop will give an overview of the clinical, acoustic and emotional environment of a hospital and explore practical techniques used in bedside music making. Through a series of developmental exercises, you will have the opportunity to develop skills in person-centred, nonverbal music making, musical communication and conversation.

You will also learn about the importance of observation skills within this setting and have the opportunity to try out a range of musical activities using voice, body and percussion. No musical knowledge is assumed in this workshop, but bring your instrument if you have one.
