Let’s not sing Tipperary

THE HEALTHY LIVING CLUB  has been delivering quality music sessions to its community of 50 plus members living with dementia since 2008. With the help of The Mrs Smith and Mount Trust, we have run a twelve-month project (which we are planning to extend) aimed at trying out and evaluating a range of repertoire to make running singing sessions easier and maximise the benefit for people living with dementia whatever their (or your) musical background.

Devised and led by Musician in Residence, MELANIE JONES with Admiral Nurse,Dave Bell and volunteer musician, Rosemary Publicover the Let’s Not Sing Tipperary project has culminated in the development of its own website which details a whole range of Warm Ups (physical, vocal and mental), Rounds, Life Repertoire and Taught Repertoire. Visit the website to learn more, listen to the music and use the resources.
