Host a music experience
Let Dr Julia Jones (aka Dr Rock) guide you through running a music activity session to bring your community togetherStart now
“Music is magical. Its power to bring people together, lift our spirits and boost wellbeing is undeniable. In 2019 the World Health Organisation formally recognised the significant contribution that music makes to wellbeing.
I’ve been examining the effects of music on the brain and body for over 25 years. In 2020 I launched the Music Diet Club to help people harness the power of music through singing, learning instruments, listening and moving.
I’m sharing my knowledge with you in the hope I inspire you to use music as a force for good in local communities.
This guide will give you advice, tips and ideas on how to host an online music activity or experience by using music in a fun and engaging way to help improve mental and physical wellbeing.”Dr Rock, founder of the Music Diet Club
