Kingston Tuesday PM Group – Music Therapy Course

Posted 18th March 2019

The Kingston Quaker Centre has been enlivened by the sound of music on Tuesday afternoons this term as the Tuesday afternoon group enjoyed a 5-week Music Therapy Course led by Elizabeth Nightingale from Chiltern Music Therapy. In their final session, the members sang along to lyrics from ‘Staying Alive’ by Bee Gees, jammed to some popular tracks and composed a fantastic piece of music together. During the course they performed lots of vocal exercises (singing particular vowel sounds and phrases) and rhythm exercises (keeping time to music with instruments) and listening to music to focus on attention. It was ‘fantastic’ said Deena and Debbie mentioned how much she’d enjoyed the singing.
