A THERAPEUTIC MUSIC MORNING AT WILLETT HOUSE

23 January 2017

Residents at Willett House had a therapeutic morning of music recently when they were visited by Kiddleydivey, a music school in London.

With the use of specially produced music and props, Kiddleydivey showed the residents some gentle exercises to get their muscles moving whilst having fun at the same time.

“The room was full of energy and smiles’’, noted Lauren Digby, Activities Carer. “When the percussion instruments were brought out, residents were playing drums and tambourines which they all enjoyed. The bubble machine also proved a hit!”
