Music Volunteers

Access All Areas are looking for dedicated, caring musicians to volunteer on our multi-sensory music and movement project for people with profound and multiple learning disabilities, 'Spinning Wheel'. 

We run weekly term-time workshops in Hackney, as well as going directly into care homes to deliver workshops to residents. Using our unique methodology in music and movement, we focus on enjoyment, engagement and each individual’s creativity.
