The outcomes that Rhythmix work towards and capture have emerged in the course of work in children and young people’s healthcare settings. Our intention to reduce anxiety and isolation and increase self expression is widely supported by the healthcare staff who have helped to shape and guide our work right from the beginning. They recognise both the need to address these issues as part of the care they offer and the effectiveness of live music making in meeting them. In this two part series we explore internal and external factors affecting our work in children's wards and units and mental health units.

As part of our Youth Music funded projects at Evelina London (Lambeth) and Broomfield Hospital (Chelmsford) we are offering opportunities for musicians in London and Essex to shadow our work on hospital children's wards in 2018. We hope to attract musicians who are interested in Music In Healthcare practice, are motivated to develop their skills and kickstart their own work in this area.

Following a half day shadowing we will talk over lunch about your interests and aims, discussing potential progression routes, offer help with signposting, all with a view to setting short and long term goals around your professional development. 

Please visit our website to fill out a short application: http://www.pulsearts.co.uk/news/2017/10/30/shadowing-opportunity-for-mus...

The deadline for applications is the 8th December 2017.  We have 4 places available. The shadowing dates will be agreed mutually and take place in the spring/summer terms.

How to plan for the future when everything keeps changing?

Readipop has just finished a 2 year Urban Orchestra programme. Throughout this programme we've had to think hard about how to engage with young people and to make sure we work with those who need the greatest support.
