"Positive music group"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

(as a volunteer/advocate),

A group of budding musicians and singer got together to sing and make music. There was a keyboard player to people playing guitars and a person playing procession.There were also some lovely singing voices. The group got on really well and learned to play 3 songs. It's the first time the group had meet though most of the group knew each other though there work at the involvement centre. The plan is to meet up every month to see what comes from the group and see how it can develop.

The idea came from a group that played christmas Carol. On that occasion people also learned to use sign language to sing the twelve days of Christmas. It would be nice if the group could learn another song to sign to.

Music is a great way of communicating good way to interact and have fun.

Thank you for sharing your story about the positive aspects of involvement volunteers getting together. I hope you continue to benefit from this group to help you meet new people and gain support from each other.

If you want to tell us about any other aspects of involvement we would be really pleased to hear about it.
