Our Stories

“I’d forgotten how much I love music. It takes you away from everyday life and brings you into a completely new world. It uplifted my emotions and put a smile on my face.”
Keshia, parent carer and member of Lifted Carers Centre, Wythenshawe

From the Scottish Highlands to the Channel Islands, from Northern Ireland to the Welsh Valleys, our professional musicians share live music with people of all ages. This includes everyone from premature babies in hospitals, to people living with dementia in care homes.

Gordon's story

The music has really helped me to forget my worries and cope much better. It brought back my confidence and really improved my mood. It has changed my life.

Edelle McMahon reflects on the #MusicEveryDay online programme

Live streams gave people an anchor in their week, so they knew on Tuesday afternoons it was Music and Memories. It helped people to feel less isolated.

Amari's story

Deaf and hearing impaired children being exposed to music, especially in this small group, is very important. They can interact with and touch the instruments to feel the vibrations.

Alexander's story

Bringing live music to either the ward or in a public area provides the patients with a moment of relaxation and allows them to tune into a different kind of vibe. It’s important for our staff because it cuts through the dynamic of the ward.

Bringing live music back to critical care in Wales with Delyth Jenkins

As musicians, our playing is informed and inspired by the listener’s response. Every response from a patient in critical care is really valuable and it’s so humbling to be back playing for them.
