Why is music important to health and well-being? This is an opportunity to explore a practical approach to working in healthcare settings with young people.

  • – Gain an insight into how music can lessen some of the challenges of being a patient
  • – Gain an understanding of how communication can be improved between staff and patients
  • – Learn how to develop interactive live music sessions

OPUS is a leading provider of music in healthcare settings. OPUS aims to engage patients, visitors and staff in music-making alongside professional musicians, within a clinical environment. Patients benefit from a humanised environment, a distraction from pain, and an enjoyable, musical interaction. OPUS also provides training opportunities for those wishing to work with music in healthcare settings.

Yorkshire Youth and Music is a community music education company working across the whole of Yorkshire. We provide music projects for children and young people and train the adults who work with these young people across the Yorkshire region. We are Youth Music’s Musical Inclusion grant-holders for West and South Yorkshire. YYM is Matrix accredited for our advice and guidance services.

This session is part of YYM’s Musical Inclusion professional development programme.

Musical Inclusion is one of Youth Music’s funding modules. The aim of the module is to ensure opportunities exist for children and young people in challenging circumstances to access and progress through high-quality music making across England. Organisations funded to deliver this module are required to have an overview of what music making activity exists in their region, and how they will go about working with regional and local strategic partners to address any gaps in music making provision for children and young people in challenging circumstances. This includes the provision of a range of professional development opportunities relevant to professionals working with these children and young people.
