Healing Music: Arts OutWest is looking for six experienced musicians in the Central West to work in hospitals and aged care. This is a paid opportunity and applications close 13th June with training in Parkes at the end of the month.
You don’t need to be a professional musician or have music qualifications but must be able to demonstrate accomplishment. It is open to musicians of all styles and genres – although a versatile and wide repertoire is an advantage, as well as instruments that are portable and not extremely loud. The program calls on musicians to work in flexible, fluid, responsive and dynamic ways in hospitals.
The two-day training program includes sessions with UK-based leaders in this field, Opus and with trained music therapist Kerrie Davies. The training includes practical experience in Parkes Hospital with follow up supervised sessions in other local hospitals or aged care facilities.
