Ten members from the Thursday group are currently halfway through a stimulating 4-session music therapy course with visiting music therapist Elizabeth. They have been practising beating time to music with a range of instruments, working on sounds such as ‘me’, ‘my’ and ‘sh’ in vocal exercises and using the lyrics to ‘Let it shine’. In each session the group have been practising playing and singing along to the John Lennon song ‘Imagine’ in preparation for a performance to the rest of their group at the end of the course. Member Claire said it’s tiring work as it really challenges the brain but great fun and she’s really enjoying the sessions. To end the session this week, members ‘jammed’ to the Elvis Presley songs ‘Jailhouse Rock’ and ‘Hound Dog’, favourites of Alan’s, a big Elvis enthusiast!
