Based in Somerset, Count Me In are a team who have worked and played together since 2002. We offer one-off sessions; lead celebrations and performances; deliver projects; offer training; run workshops for education, events and gatherings.
Our work has a focus of finding musicality through 'playing with music' - we enjoy exploring communication through sound and improvisation. Often we work with people who are not trained as musicians, or may have learning disabilities.
Recent work includes 'Flowmotion', a collaborative, intergenerational project with Wiltshire Dancing; 'Making Time for Music' - a series of training workshops for social services staff; and 'Heart Beats', a Youth Music project that aims to challenge social isolation and give young people a relevant means of self expression through music whilst building skills and confidence.
The music leaders in the Count Me In team are Jane Harwood, Russ Stanley, Alex Lupo, Willow Harwood.
