Tuning in and moving together musically

Tuning in and moving together musically
In this step, you will use your reflective journal. Think about how you could begin to practice tuning in using musical elements within your care setting, and look for opportunities to actively join in with the sounds and movements of someone you support. Think through your daily or weekly timetable and identify times when you could begin to connect musically in this way.

Ideas of suitable moments for this include:

  • Whilst walking side-by-side with someone;
  • Whilst supporting someone with bathing or showering;
  • When moving between different rooms in your care setting;
  • At a quiet moment before bedtime;
  • When someone isn’t engaging in an activity.

Make some notes in your reflective journal.
