‘Life Long Song’ is a service offering a musical experience to the community focusing on the Third and Fourth Age. We believe that there is a great need for initiatives that support the well-being and productivity of older people. We aim to draw people together to experience all aspects of shared music-making and singing. Within the framework we have developed of musical activity and communication, many immediate benefits are realised. These are social, emotional, physiological and cognitive.
Participants are seated in a circle where they are able to move, communicate, listen, watch and respond. There are warm-up songs, a welcome song, responses encouraged to interesting recorded music, appropriate and meaningful use of instruments and sound makers to fit with a song or recording, all adding enjoyment. Activities might include the use of stimulating props (scarves, ribbons, parachutes etc.)
Ali and Janet work together to ensure pace and awareness of the needs and skills of the group. With this level of mutual support it is possible to develop part work, both instrumental and vocal. Music enables, enriches and energises.

We are inspired every day by the commitment and tenacity of those who support children/young people in schools or in extracurricular enrichment centres in a voluntary capacity to gain vocational experience. Today’s job market is competitive and we aim to provide those people with that extra knowledge to ensure that they are successful in gaining suitable employment. We also believe that in this area of high percentage house repossession, suicide, divorce and unemployment, the children involved are very often the ‘forgotten’ factor, needing specialist support to help them cope with personal issues and raise attainment, therefore not perpetuating the ‘cycle of deprivation’ any further.
As a company we run 1 day and short courses to enhance the professional skills of those who support children/young people with SEN, additional needs, mental health issues and those who live in areas of high socio economic deprivation, in any kind of voluntary capacity eg youth centres; schools; uniformed organisations. We also work with and support older teenagers and adults in a personal capacity, who are possibly out of work, retired or still in education, who are grieving or struggling to cope with a loss, the breakdown of a relationship or similar.
