A Musical and Art group

Tamworth Masonic Rooms

musical notationWe set up a group for music and singing for adults with learning disabilities. Mainly because there were none in the area that met our needs. This was a great success as many who joined us enjoyed the musical activity and attend the weekly sessions. The details of the venue and times are as shown below.

 

Music can facilitate:

  • attention
  • recognition
  • communication
  • anticipation
  • fine and gross motor skills
  • social skills
  • patterning (such as counting or pre-reading skills)
  • fostering memories
  • self-esteem
Both our Music and Art groups are now full. We cannot accommodate any more members beyond the ones we already have. Please contact us if you want to be considered being added to our waiting list. Please read our policy first – click here.

  1. The work performed by this group is outstanding. It is wonderful to see members developing their talents and gaining the opportunity to do this in a friendly and supportive environment. It has been a great pleasure to meet one of the group at the Cambrian Heritage Railway and see him enjoy the day while showing rapt attention and learning at the same time. Well done Yvonne and Mike for providing this great opportunity. I look forward to hearing and seeing the success of the group as it goes from strength to strength.

  2. Well done to all involved!, its great to see the members thriving in such a safe and fun learning environment. As a parent of a child with learning difficulties groups like these are vital and such a benefit to the local area.
