STAND NUMBER: D401
Musicteam provide specialist music services to care homes; established 2004, our musicians work in all the key five areas of care: dementia care, residential care, nursing care, day Care, respite and convalescent care. We also provide musicians for children's nurseries and youth and adult day centres.
We have had many emotional moments in our work, we've lost friends, made friends, but ultimately the music has made a difference. One of our clients has a resident who until we started providing music at their location would never leave his room, six sessions on he comes out of his room to join in, coming into the lounge with other residents. Even the slightest of foot tapping by a resident along with the beat of the song, or the faintest of smiles, we and the staff observe these moments and they are wonderful and show the power of music. Our musicians are met with cheers when they arrive, before the first song has been sung.
We also provide music activities for adults and children with learning disabilities,where we provide drum workshop and music composition teachers, dance and drama therapists, art therapists, musicians and singers. Such is our strength and focus in this field our musicians have been able to identify many factors individually, one example being the positive diagnosis of the early stages of learning disability within a child through 1 to 1 music activity.
Due to our concept of setting the bar high when recruiting, we have carefully introduced a mixture of raw talent and talented musicians into the care sector, building their experience and training them where necessary.
As founder of Musicteam, John's concept of what a music activity should involve has meant his team are all of the same approach, in that the music is all about the clients needs; "The emphasis has always been on making the music sessions and entertainment we provide a memorable and fulfilling experience; this has been achieved with all of our clients, where our musicians quickly become part of the weekly/ monthly calendar. In many locations our musicians have visited for well over ten years. Many of our clients now regard us as part of the family, our musicians become involved in voluntary work at the care homes they visit and help out with day trips in their own time".
"Musicteam is not a franchise, it is a small dedicated business run by myself and a small office team that employs solo professional singers/ musicians/ artists of the highest standard and calibre, providing a wide variety of music and music activities suitable for all ages and abilities. I am sure that our service will bring happiness into your care or educational setting".
