Hello and welcome to KIDDLEYDIVEY EAST MIDLANDS!

My name is Emma Franklin and I am based in Breaston, near Long Eaton just off the A52 and the M1, so easily able to travel within the Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire areas and even over the Staffordshire border.

I have come from a background of over 30 years as a teacher, focused on Early Years and Special Needs. Both of these are really useful for focussing on the needs of individuals. I have also been a professional singer and all my spare time is taken up being in choirs and small singing groups. My father lives in a care home and before lockdown we loved to go to concerts and the theatre. At his home I spent many hours having sing-a-long sessions with the residents and now do this on a one-to –one with my Dad every time I visit. Even when he’s not able to talk he will respond to music; and that’s the reason I now work with Kiddleydivey.
I run a variety of therapeutic music sessions for the elderly across much of the East Midlands. The interactive music sessions aim to encourage lots of movement and laughter, as well as stimulating memories while we sing, exercise (in and out of chairs) and play instruments. I bring along props such as hats, scarves and flags to add a bit of extra fun. It is wonderful to hear quotes such as this during or following a session:

“That was fantastic! Can you come back tomorrow?”

“It hurts my legs to move but I’m having such fun!” (kicking in the Can Can!)

“It makes my brain work to try and remember all the words!”

If your area is not listed, please do still contact me as we are always happy to visit new local areas within our radius.
