MyMusic Northamptonshire offers female Carers of all ages the opportunity to get involved in a wide range of musical activities. The sessions are being funded by Spirit of 2012 and the DCMS as part of their Carers Music Fund, and delivered in partnership with musicians from Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust.

COVID-19 UPDATE

MyMusic aims to bring female Carers together to take a break, join a community, have fun and try something new. Now, more than ever, it is important to find new ways to stay connected and feel part of a community. Because of this, MyMusic is moving online to continue to bring music-making opportunities to female Carers in their homes.

Please note: Replacement Care from Regulated Care Workers can be arranged if needed. 

RESOUND

  • Resound is a 12-week music project for female Carers across Northamptonshire.
  • Weekly music groups will be running online from Monday 9th November, led by musicians from the NMPAT musical inclusion team. 
  • Groups will include ukulele, sign & sing, songwriting, sing-along and musical theatre groups, with several sessions also being "Dementia Friendly". 
  • The sessions will be creative, inclusive and fun, with all abilities welcome. 
  • Sessions will be run online on Zoom, with funding and support for technology available if needed. 
  • We’ll be showcasing what we’ve all been up to in the new year!

Why should I get involved?

Although we can’t meet in person at the moment, we can still be socially connected and music is a brilliant way to do that. Our hope is that we can build community in a different way and have something positive to look forward to each week!
