Old Songs for Happiness View details

This course is a journey into popular music, singing well known popular songs, talking about memories of musical experiences and playing a little percussion to engage with rhythmic activities. There will be no pressure to engage with singing and playing - if some of the learners wish to listen, that will be fine, but we hope there will be a solid engagement with the music, singing popular songs and playing rhythms that accompany the music. The main aim is to relax and enjoy the music together. The tutor will play guitar and sing and if the learners have a interest in learning some guitar or djembe (an African drum) playing within the group, that can be accomodated. The most important aspect is that we all develop a group love of music and the tutor will ask questions of the learners' lives to develop a trust and understanding of their experiences.
