Community Music and Groups

Songwriters Nights #1/#2 funded a block of ten 30-minute music sessions for children with additional support needs at a local primary school during Oct-Dec 2021.

These were inclusive music-making activities, often improvised on the spot and responding to the sounds each child made with their voice or instruments.

Songwriters Night #3 funded six 30-minute music sessions for adults with additional support needs in the community during Feb 2022.

These sessions involved singing songs chosen by those involved, including plenty of popular tunes by ABBA, Elvis and much more!

Songwriters Nights #3/4 part-funded eight 45-minute music sessions for adults with dementia.

These will begin soon, using music to re-connect with memories and loved ones.

Songwriters Nights #4/5/6 funded eight 45-minute therapeutic songwriting sessions for young people in a Dundee secondary school.

These will begin in August 2022, helping young people express themselves creatively in their own way.

Below there are information sheets and details of previous groups.

Read more about my previous experience in community music and music therapy.

In 2018/19 I ran Better Taygether - an intergenerational singing group at The Circle in Dundee, in partnership with Better:Gen.

This group brought together people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to sing, helping to improve their well-being and connect with others.

This particular group is no longer running, but if you're interested in something similar please get in touch.

The original face the music group began in 2015 at a library in Dundee, and met for several months - learning chords and songs along the way.

People of all ages joined to make music with guitars, ukuleles, cajon, djembe, clarinet, flute & cabasa.
The name of the group, and eventually this organisation came from fun all-age community ensemble.

"Singing is like a celebration of oxygen."
