Music for the Brain Overview

During the 2017/2018 academic year, The Children’s Trust School in Tadworth, Surrey, UK,, for children and young people aged 2-19 years with acquired brain injury, commissioned Sounds of Intent Charity to create a set of resources that teachers, carers and parents could use to engage pupils and students with profound disabilities through music. To this end, The Trust employed a Sounds of Intent music practitioner one day a week to work with colleagues to ensure that the resources that were produced would enable non-music-specialists to embed music activities readily in their day-to-day practice. The result was a set of 36 cards, each matching a Sounds of Intent element in the reactive, proactive and interactive domains at Levels 1, 2 and 3. A catalogue of the cards, with links to each, is provided here.

Printed sets of cards are available from The Trust. Contact or telephone +44 (0) 1737 365 000.
