I’m new and I’ve had a look through the site but I don’t think this has been asked. I did find the post a few pages back about playing in nursing homes which is very helpful and i will look into finding the fake books.
Under the guidance of a music therapist I am looking to volunteer playing some environmental music in the palliative care unit associated with my work.
It won’t be a clinical intervention; I will not be having direct contact with the patients or their families. Music therapy is a specialized field and I just want to do what I can as a volunteer.
The gist is I need some neutral music – not too happy and most definitely not mournful. I was thinking some of the Celtic music like Down by the Salley Garden, doing some scale related music like the Grossi exercises … but thought I would throw it out to the experts as to what you would recommend. I would need 20 minutes worth so I’m open to ideas!
