Come and join the Kiddleydivey fun!
Kiddleydivey have been delivering our upbeat, lively, and therapeutic music programmes to residential homes, day centres, hospitals and specialist units across the UK since 1996.
|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 encourage everyone to participate.
We are constantly updating and researching new therapeutic methods, songs, music and equipment to add to our music sessions, so our 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.
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 adults and people with special needs, encouraging movement, socialisation and interaction.
"My name is Marcia and my passion is music. I just love listening to it in many different genres and in many different circumstances.
|My parents were music lovers and my mum would always sing to us growing up, making us feel safe, happy and loved. Her favourites were anything with a good strong drum beat and I have followed her lead on this. I love drums above all instruments and liken it to the heartbeat, which then channels so many differing emotions, depending upon how you feel.
My grandparents were very musical. My Nan become a concert pianist, but she suffered from nerves so never pursued it sadly. My Grandad couldn't read music but he had a good ear and would play the accordion and harmonica. I can't read or write music either but that didn't stop me putting together a huge collection of vinyl records and CDs over the years. I would give my Dad any pocket money and ask him to just buy me records, I didn't mind what.
My career, like my music taste, has been very varied also but other than my musical interests, my main experiences have been as an animal keeper, whether in zoos, safari parks, rescue centres or peoples homes, caring for their pets. My favourite animals are monkeys.
I feel being a Kiddleydivey Music Session Leader gives me the opportunity to share my love of music, have some fun and a good old sing song, spending time with people who want to do the same. Music is such a powerful and sharing medium - I love it!"
