Music Care Training Course

A three level training programme that prepares caregivers to use music in their care practice with increased confidence and theoretical understanding. Level 1 begins in May 2018

The University of Nottingham has partnered with The Room 217 Foundation to bring you a unique opportunity to deepen your understanding of music's effect in care spaces and in caring relationships.

The Room 217 Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation and registered Canadian charity dedicated to caring for the whole person with music. Room 217’s music care approach is about using music with intention, allowing the therapeutic principles of sound and musical effect inform us.

Music care integrates sound, silence and music into the circle of care, paying close attention to how interpersonal connection and human contact is enhanced through musical associations. Music care aims to enhance well-being and quality of life and care for all people.

 

In May the University of Nottingham will be delivering Level 1, which is part of a three level training programme that prepares caregivers to use music in their care practice with increased confidence and theoretical understanding.

 

Level 1 introduces delegates to the basic theory of music care, as well as strategies that can be applied to various settings. It is a two day course that prepares individuals to:

 

  • Understand the basic principles of music in care
  • Gain confidence using specific music care techniques
  • Develop a strategic plan for a music care programme in your practice

 

There are two dates available for the course in Nottingham: 

  •          29-30 May 2018
