Music In Our Bones

Contact: Tracy Sharp   Telephone: 07757 809297   Email:

Music In Our Bones believes in the power of song to bring people together.

We have recently started running three groups in Rushmere village hall.

1. Songlines is for stroke survivors and their friends or family on Wednesday afternoons fortnightly

2. Musical memories is for anyone with memory loss issues and their partners or adult children or close friend. It runs on Thursday afternoons fortnightly

3. Heartsong is open to anyone who has always wanted to try singing but never dared! Family carers are especially welcomed or anyone feeling lonely or managing a long-term health issue. Second Friday afternoon of the month.

We sing in a circle and teach by ear. No one ever has to sing along and TOGETHER we always sound great!

Please phone to book a place
