Together in Sound Braintree
A new, free interactive music therapy group in Braintree for those living with dementia and their companions
About Together in Sound
Saffron Hall, Braintree Museum and Anglia Ruskin University are pleased to be working in partnership alongside Braintree Museum to provide the opportunity for people living with dementia and their carers to attend a music therapy group.
Together in Sound music therapy groups aim to bring the power of music to those living with dementia. We’ll focus on joint music-making and listening with a goal of supporting communication, relationships, and increasing quality of life through a collaborative group process. There will be opportunities to sing, play and listen to live music together, with weekly sessions led by music therapists and visiting professional musicians from Saffron Hall's programme. There is an informal sharing and celebration with friends and family toward the end of the 10 week programme.
Together in Sound groups have been running in Saffron Walden since 2018 and we are delighted to now offer these sessions in Braintree!
