Tuning into Music
  • Plymouth Music Zone, Raglan Road, Devonport, Plymouth PL1 4NQ

Save event

This event brought together healthcare workers from Plymouth and Cornwall. The event was a music intervention to facilitate communication with people who have difficulty using words to communicate. 

The intervention was designed based on key findings from the Beyond Words project and delivered as professional development for health workers (social workers, support care workers, nurses, doctors, educators, clinical psychologists, speech therapists).

The session included a 20-minute presentation on key findings from the Beyond Words project and a 60-minute interactive music intervention tailored to healthcare workers to explore the use of music to facilitate communication, inclusion and wellbeing. 

There was time for discussion and feedback. No music experience or background was necessary to attend and all were welcome!
