Sounds Together

What is Sounds Together?

Sounds Together supports learning Disabled people with complex support needs to make music with others, tell their stories, and have their voices heard in a way that is accessible for them.

Together, over the course of around 12 music sessions, the group creates something they can share with the wider community. They decide on the project outcome such as soundscapes, installations, performances, compositions, recordings, musical theatre/opera.

The music sessions are led by specialist Soundabout music practitioners who design and adapt sessions around the needs and interests of the group. Sessions use a variety of instruments and multi-sensory items.
