Interactive Concerts

We provide Interactive Concerts for residential groups and day-care centres for people with mild to severe multiple disabilities. The basis of the concert is a combination of improvised music and repertoire. Music offers positive outcomes, such as releasing emotions and promoting cognitive, motor, social and emotional development. In addition, the contact between the participants and their carers is improved and this has positive influences on the living and working atmosphere

Target group





With our music training programme, we give healthcare workers tools to do more with music in their daily care practice. Family and other caregivers can also participate in our training courses. We always involve experts who are active within the location, such as music therapists, activity coordinators and local professional and amateur musicians.

During the Interactive Concerts, musicians move among the clients, make personal contact and invite them in an open and quiet way to play and/or sing along. 
We use different simple instruments. When choosing the instrument, we pay attention to the age and degree of disability of the participants. Everyone can join in, sing along and play along.

The concert lasts 1 to 2 hours.

For people with disabilities:

•Improvement of physical and psychological well-being
• Improvement of cognitive, motor, social and emotional development
•Better concentration
•More pleasant and easier contact with supervisors and care staff

For the employees:

• Better working atmosphere and less stress
• Staff gain more self-confidence by developing their own musical talent and musical leadership
• Staff enjoy their work and contact with clients more
• Interactive tasks in healthcare take less time, because clients/patients are happier and cooperate better
