‘Church Farm in East Wittering. Always join in with enthusiasm and staff can be regularly joining in as well. Great fun sessions.’  Kathryn Tarrant 

The Old Rectory – Devon
‘They had a fab session in August – everyone was really engaged and enthusiastic. The home as a whole really support music – there is always something going on. The staff often entertain the residents and also run music days to which everyone is invited. In August they held a “Greatest Show” event and this month they are hosting “Torstock 3”, their 3rd annual festival of music, arts and food. Kate Grant

Rosewood House – Bath & Bristol
‘The care staff at Rosewood House attended the session to engage with the residents and encourage participation, particularly with the movement based music. After the session they put some more music on and we all had a dance, it was wonderful. ‘  Claire Hamlen

Wolfeton Manor – Dorset
‘The residents were clearly very happy there. They were very chatty and most sang along. There was lots of musical discussion and they held the session in the conservatory, which had really nice view of their fantastic garden. A real family atmosphere amongst the residents.’  Josh Elliott 

The Firs – Wiltshire
‘Getting to know the residents at The Firs continues to be an absolute privilege. The staff are attentive and fun and have a fantastic knowledge of their residents stories. Everyone is up for a good time and the sessions are always joyous and uplifting.’. Karen
