Wye Valley Music In Schools: WVMiS was launched in 2018 to provide local Primary Schools with one-off music programs from workshops to concerts and lectures by professional musicians already performing for Wye Valley Music and by performers specialising in introducing musical instruments to children. We're looking for new volunteers to help run the programme; please email us at i[email protected] if you're interested. With the help of grants from the Lark Trust and donations from our members, we have conducted live music workshops in over 12 local schools for over 1,300 children. In the spring of 2022, we also contracted a pianist to lead one local primary school choir and support two more. If you're a musican and would like to apply to work for this programme, click here.
Wye Valley Music In Mind: WVMiM launched in spring 2021 in response to the growing body of evidence pointing to the benefits of music to those living with dementia.Our pilot-scheme took place in August/September, in partnership with Severn View Care Home, Chepstow, using two students from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and a dementia-trained music therapist. We have returned to Severn View in 2022 with a monthly programme of interactive music. Closer to home, in January 2022 we launched a monthly Music Memory Café in St Briavels for all those in the area concerned about memory loss or living with a diagnosis of dementia, along with their family members and carers.
