Personalised projects and multisensory sessions


We can provide personalised music projects and themed activities for smaller adult groups.

A recent project for adults was a five-week mutlisensory music club alongside based on last year's multisensory days.  Customers with complex needs met weekly to listen, watch, move, play instruments, sing and interact and make music with accessible instruments and technology.
