MusicConnect Collaboration "Music Time Twist"

This term one of our collaborating partners has been CatholicCare. CatholicCare collaborated with a Sydney based women's refuge to deliver our "Music Time Twist" weekly program to families experiencing complex situations. Families engaged enthusiastically in a range of activities including singing and percussion instrument playing, with therapeutic goals as the basis of the session programming. Al observed that families seemed to particularly benefit from the face-to-face activities and the reflection/discussion time after the music making had ended. One of the children requested "Life is a Highway" from the movie CARS. Al included this song in the sessions each week, and the child who requested it joined in with the singing, while Mum smiled proudly.
