Bath, Bristol & Surrounds Coordinator
Hi, I’m Claire, I’m the Area Manager for Musica Bristol and Surrounds. I have been working for Musica since I graduated from my BA(hons) degree in music at Bath Spa University and have loved every second of it. I first heard about Musica in a community music lecture at university where Rosanna spoke about the scientific benefits of music for older adults. Inspired, I soon undertook a work placement with the Alzheimer’s Society’s ‘Singing for the Brain’ sessions and saw first-hand the benefits to mood, mobility and recall.
Our reach in my area has grown smoothly since I began, and we now have a team of facilitators with a wealth of knowledge in community music. We provide interactive music workshops tailored to the residents we work with, live musical performances and now our wonderful choir programme. Our mission is to make musical experiences available to everyone and to support care settings in the dementia journey. Please get in touch to find out about our introductory offers or for more information on the services we provide. I look forward to seeing you at a Musica session soon!
