Kiddleydivey have been delivering our upbeat, lively, and therapeutic music programmes to residential homes, day centres, hospitals and specialist units as well as children's classes in South Buckinghamshire, Berkshire & Hertfordshire for over 21 years. We currrently deliver 20+ children's classes each week as well as 15+ therapeutic music programmes in day services, lunch clubs and care homes.
The song tracks we use with the adults have all been chosen for their popularity with our particular client group and for their therapeutic content. We choose to use mostly up-beat songs with lively rhythms, popular classical pieces and music from many different eras and genres.
Each and every song or music track has been specially adapted for use in each individual setting, with tempos sometimes altered, keys changed to make group singing easier, and unknown versed to songs taken out.
As we also work with younger clients we have popular songs and music from the 60's 70's 80's and 90's as well.
We have a large variety of props that we use to encourage movement. From hoops to feathers, ribbons and bass drums, bubbles and hats, we can be sure to entice everyone to participate.
We are constantly updating and researching new therapeutic methods, songs, music and equipment to add to our music sessions, so our children and adults can really benefit from and enjoy the content and structure of our music programmes and classes. We add special sessions for important occasions such as the Queen's birthday celebrations and the Olympics, Easter, and of course Christmas.
We recently put together a session for a 'beach party' with a large group of over 50 adults who live in the community and came to party together at the Old Windsor Day Centre.
Our music programmes are always lively, full of fun and laughter but most importantly, the musical content is presented in such a way as to really stimulate, educate and engage the children, adults and people with special needs, encouraging movement, socialisation and interaction.
