Music for the Mind

Music for the Mind is an interactive musical programme developed by Becki Short, and licenced to OmniArts to offer to care homes and social groups. The programme is available as a one-hour session, or a one and a half hour session, with a tea break.

If you would like to book one of our practitioners to come to your care home or social group to run a session, please email

The sessions start with a gentle physical and vocal warm up, and instruments are handed round. Attendees choose songs from the songbook, and we sing and play them. The practitioner will encourage participants to move with the music if they are able. The sessions end with a gentle cool down.

Every session is relaxed, and flows organically with those attending. Sometimes there is reminiscing and story telling, sometimes dancing, and sometimes attendees bring their own musical talents to light as well!
