Join us to learn how you can use music and song writing to self-manage pain. From improving your physical health through moving to the rhythm to how you can use song writing to support your mental wellbeing. “One good thing about music is that when it hits you, you feel no pain.” Bob Marley

Music is an amazing way to support your health and wellbeing, it gets us moving, find ways to express ourselves and have fun whilst doing it! By the end of the six-week course, you’ll have found some great techniques to play with to make writing enjoyable, but we’ll also listen to music to hear how it’s structured, how it comes together and what people write about most. If your dexterity is difficult, you are welcome to use any tool that works for you, or just take part, there’s no pressure to share your creations.

Joining us will be Cat Nunn, singer, writer and founder of Music Anywhere and Holly Tamar, singer, guitarist and independent songwriter, who works with the Swan Song Project to support people to bring their music to life.
