How exciting! Sitting here with Jean starting a blog…
Everyone Matters is passionate about bringing music to people who can’t get out to hear it or to play it themselves.
We visit nursing homes, schools for children with special needs, day centres, etc. We have projects especially devised for groups of all ages, including tots under 5 and people diagnosed with dementia.
Our professional musicians are committed to sharing great music with every group they visit. They turn up with anything from a ‘cello and a clarinet, to a van load of exciting large percussion.
Young violinists, who performed alongside our professionals, see the funny side in post-concert chat with older people at Day Opportunities Chislehurst, Age UK Bromley and Greenwich. This intergenerational project was funded by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund.
Choreographer Lauren Potter leads a circle dance with students aged 16+ at Priory School for young people with severe learning difficulties and on the autistic spectrum.
“Big Chief” Scott, having just performed “Red Indian War Dance”, supports the weight of his antique bass drum to give this learner a close encounter with its powerful “boom”.
Young musicians from Bishop Justus School celebrate their success as performers alongside professional musicians in Bromley nursing homes.
I hope you enjoy our new blog, and I look forward to keeping in touch! Please let me know your thoughts and ideas for our music making!
