Building your resilience and keeping well through music

Friday 3 July 2020

10:00am - 12:00pm

Online via Zoom

We are offering this course free of charge due to the current COVID-19 situation. However, Sound Connections is a charity and we would appreciate your support to enable us to continue to offer opportunities to those working with young people through music. If you are able to donate please do so here.

Gail Macleod, Soundcastle

Darren Abrahams


How are you doing? We know that many musicians, music educators, workshop leaders, freelancers, facilitators in our network have been dealing with a range of stresses during the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether it is loss of income, feeling a lack of purpose, anxiety, bereavement, pressures of having children at home, or a range of other issues we recognise that these are incredibly challenging times. 


This session is all about you. The first part with Gail Macleod from Soundcastle will focus on adapting to change, and how we can build our personal resilience both now and as we move towards an uncertain future. The second part of the session with Darren Abrahams will provide some practical advice and activities for how you can use music to help you, your families, or the children and young people that you engage with, as a way of improving your own mental health. The final part of the session will be an opportunity to grab a drink, and have a chat with others in a breakout room. Or if you prefer, join our no-talking Zoom zone and simply listen to some music in the company of others. 



This session is online using Zoom.


As a small charity we rely upon donations from generous individuals, trusts and companies to support our work with children and young people across London.
