Hi, my name is Alyson, a mother of two, an ex-teacher with a Bachelor of Education degree with early years and music as a specialism. Music is my passion, I play the piano, ‘cello and attend a local choir! It gives me so much pleasure to bring therapeutic, engaging, and educational music activities to both the young and the young at heart in care homes and the community!

Music for adults

I have been providing interactive, fun filled music sessions in care homes, nursing homes and community settings since November 2016.
I specialise in music for older adults and those with dementia, but I also provide sessions for young adults and those with physical and learning disabilities.

How do I book a session for my care home at your special introductory offer of £35?

Currently I am offering a special introductory offer of only £35 for a first visit. Please give me a call on 07711965641 or email bath@kiddleydivey.co.uk and I’d be happy to arrange a session with you and let you know about any other offers and prices.

What happens in a group session?

You will see the following in these lively sessions:

  • Singing and dancing are encouraged (where appropriate, or chair based dancing/movements)
  • The use of stimulating and exciting props and musical instruments.
  • A new theme every visit – including songs from the musicals, Love theme, Easter, Christmas, Queens Birthday, etc. We can also tailor a theme for you.
  • Reminiscence using props for discussion when appropriate.
  • Gentle exercise – movement is encouraged even if slightly. I hold a level 2 award for chair based exercise
  • Fun and laughter are a huge part of what we do.

What benefits do the sessions bring?

The benefits you will get with a Kiddleydivey session can be quite astonishing and include:

  • Those who can no longer hold conversation may be able to sing whole songs
  • Those who are introverted, joining in to interact
  • Positive changes in mood and emotional states
  • Improved memory function
  • Increased mobility
  • Opportunities to interact socially
  • Non pharmacological management of pain and discomfort

Music for children

I provide music sessions in nurseries and open classes in the community.
Following guidelines set out in the EYFS Curriculum, Kiddleydivey uses music to create themed educational activities designed to promote the individual development of the child.

The structure and repetition within the sessions and working as a group can help to develop their confidence, coordination, language, musical, numeracy and social skills, allowing even the most hesitant child to blossom.

Sessions are fun, active and vibrant! Singing, dancing, wiggling, playing percussion instruments,Jumping in the bubbles, using props like the parachute, moving in time to the music, echoing musical patterns, rhythms and melodies will help to enhance the development of the whole child.

Trial sessions available only £2.50
