Hi! I’m Naomi, a community musician, teacher and Singing for Wellbeing leader in Exmouth, UK. I teach fundamental musicianship skills and provide therapeutic music sessions for children and adults of all ages and abilities.
We all deserve to experience good mental health and a positive sense of wellbeing. At the heart of my work is the belief that everyone can benefit from music – whether singing, dancing, playing an instrument, or simply listening and relaxing. Music can in turn be uplifting, energising, soothing, calming, fun, or inspiring!
As a lifelong musician with a profound interest in mental health I am keen to help others use music to enhance their wellbeing. With this in mind, I provide a range of activities delivered in a safe, friendly and nurturing environment, including:
Singing groups for stroke survivors
Community Singing for Wellbeing sessions
Singing for the Brain sessions for people living with dementia
Singing sessions for adults in residential care settings
Friendly, pupil-centred music tuition for all ages and abilities
Flexible mixed music sessions for children and young people with additional needs
- Early years music sessions for parents and carers with children from birth to 5 years
Youth theatre vocal coaching
The benefits of music are not restricted to people of a particular age or background. I work with individuals across the lifecourse, from babies and toddlers through to older people. Music can help us feel better in many ways – for example, learning a new skill such as how to play a musical instrument can boost our confidence, while singing with others can help to build new friendships and reduce loneliness.
If you are interested in finding out more about music and wellbeing, or are someone who already works in the field and would like to share ideas, please get in touch! I would be very happy to hear from you.
