Working alongside people with dementia: 'Introducing'
28 March 2023
The first full day session in a new training course from Sounds Better CIC

Building on the success of their pre-pandemic training days, Sounds Better CIC (formerly Music for Wellbeing CIC) have launched a new, developed and expanded training course in Working Musically Alongside People with Dementia.

Taking place face to face over 4 days in the Salisbury area from March - September 2023 the course will take you from an introductory level to more advanced skills and ideas, including planning and reflecting models. You will be able to implement activities and ideas immediately, developing over time, working with a group of people with dementia, and connecting with others in the field.

This first day of the course - 'Introducing' - will provide an overview of music and dementia and is aimed at people who are less experienced with using participatory music in their settings, or who would like to learn more about how to work musically with people with dementia. For example, early career musicians/facilitators, OTs, Activity workers, volunteers, or those who just want a refresher for their existing practice.

By the end of the day, you will have

  • understood the rationale and benefits of using music with people with dementia
  • learned introductory musical and creative activities that can be implemented immediately in your group, setting or context
  • connected with others in the field of music and dementia


Tickets cost £100 per day, or you can access a 'saver bundle' via the link below if you book all four days:
