Music on Mondays at Melbourne - starts 2nd March

Lakeside Arts staff have teamed up with Nottingham University Students to bring entertainment to Melbourne House Care Home at Aspley.


The inaugural meeting to decide what sort of music the older people enjoy, already had success inspiring the residents, when one lady gave an unaccompanied rendition of 'On a street where you Live' she had known this song from when she was very young and could still remember all the words. Other songs popular with the residents are;  songs from the musicals, Elvis Presley, hymns, lively dance music - a bedbound lady loves La Traviata' and one resident said 'Any music is good music for us'


 The great thing about music is that it evokes a lot of emotion from individuals and really stimulates the memory, as well as being very uplifting. The versatile students play a range of instruments; guitar, violin, cello, with great singing voices too. Other ideas for making instruments, inviting friends and relatives and using children's instruments (for their lightness) were discussed. Prior to 'getting together' for the initial meeting Kate Duncan of City Arts conducted a 'dementia friends' session with the musicians and students to help increase aware 

Melbourne House is always a welcoming home and entertainment adds to the whole attractiveness. 'We look forward to these sessions starting Monday 2nd March , 4pm and as always welcome the involvement of friends and relatives' said home manager Pauline Zadwirny.
