Mindful Music Musician in Residence - Raph is supporting the delivery development with his insights into music in school communities.
"I'm a musician, workshop leader, composer - I've worked with a lot of different organisations leading, supporting, planning delivering workshops with school and community groups of all ages and needs, from working with vulnerable parents and babies, to music projects for those living with a dementia. Most relevant to mindful music is probably my work with children who have challenging circumstances, usually presenting confidence and wellbeing issues (that schools often interpret as behavioural problems). I'm more and more interested in synching up the music that I write and perform professionally with this sort of community work, and with some of the ensembles I run (The Dissolute Society), have run workshops in hospitals and with children with communication needs to create music together.
