Uplifting Music Classes for
Care Homes &
Strike-A-Chord understands the priceless role that music plays in the lives of senior citizens. In fact, playing a musical instrument is proven to have even more rewarding benefits for the elderly. Therefore, we offer two (2) of our flagship music-making programmes for care homes and retirement communities: Keyboard Lessons for the Over-50's and the African Percussions Clinic.
When asked, an overwhelming proportion of the ageing community in Birmingham responded that "Learning how to play the piano" had been a lifelong ambition. Our Keyboard Lessons are fun-filled and made simple for the participants to follow. Our focus is to ensure that the participants learn simple rudiments of how to play the keyboard and have fun with the instrument. Thus, the scope of our programme does not include learning how to read music or coping with cumbersome music score sheets. Conducted LIVE in-person, in a group-coaching format, the programme runs for 4 weeks (once a week for an hour). We provide the keyboards needed for this uplifting learning experience at no additional cost! Up to 5 people can participate and the flat fee (regardless of whether there are 5 or less participants) is £600. In the event that you just want a one-off 1-hour workshop, the fee shall be £195. All sessions shall be conducted on your premises or location of choice (the aforementioned prices are for Birmingham).
