Enjoy some of these videos and documentaries about Music in Our Bones
In February 2016, Music In Our Bones began a 6 month pilot singing project with stroke survivors, we called Stroke Songlines in Stowmarket. Feedback from everyone involved, singing volunteers and members of the group, has been fascinating, really positive and encouraging about the difference singing with others has made to everyone.
This short video, made by the wonderful Stroke Association volunteer Rik Thornton, on you tube says it all.
