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 for 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 Gavin Skeggs and I lead sessions in Kiddleydivey Stevenage, Biggleswade & Hitchin. I live in Biggleswade with my family. Before having my beautiful daughter, I studied Music & Sociology at university in Liverpool and have been fortunate to have developed a successful career as a professional vocalist and music educator. I’ve had the opportunity to perform at a host of fantastic venues and festivals in the UK and across Europe. Whether teaching classes or directing live practical workshop sessions, I have always encouraged the idea that music can help nurture positive physical, social and academic development in all. I look forward to sharing Kiddleydivey’s inclusive approach of music by running fun therapeutic music sessions in your care home.
We are delighted to offer care homes in Stevenage, Biggleswade, Hitchin and the surrounding area. For more information, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me on 07414 266454.
