Our service-users have the opportunity to learn an instrument or can learn how to create music electronically on a laptop computer.
We provide guitar and keyboard lessons every Tuesday from 10am; guitar lessons also available Tuesdays-Thursdays from 10am.
Making music offers people a new experience of themselves, which can support those experiencing temporary distress or chronic and enduring problems.
