Adult Support: Musical Storytelling
June 2 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Welcome to AsIAm’s Adult
Support Programme. We aim to reduce isolation and nurture community in
autistic adults. This adult support group will focus on musical storytelling!
Let’s explore how to tell a story through music. We’ll discover the stories
behind our favourite songs, the musical sounds of our everyday world, and
create our own storyland through music and sound. No previous musical
experience and no musical instruments required. A small box of simple
instruments will be posted to the participants after the first session together
(there is no obligation to play them in these sessions if you don’t want to.
Once the sessions are finished, the instruments are yours to keep). Max 10
Dates: June 2nd, June 16th, June 30th, July 14th, July 28th
Time: 11am – 12pm
Numbers: 10 (maximum)
