'Music moment' sessions for adults with learning difficulties in Bromsgrove go virtual

A MUSIC and dance teacher who worked with people with learning difficulties at Bromsgrove’s Amber Support before the COVID-19 lockdown has been running daily sessions online.

Gabrielle Walley, who has a degree in music and sings in a local choir, has been broadcasting her 30-minute Music Moments sessions on her Amber Spotlight Facebook page.

She said: “As we found ourselves not in work and our clients at home with family or being supported in their homes, I wanted to help try and keep some of the routine.

“The sessions have been very well-received and they can’t wait for 11am each day so they can take part.

“Although we don’t want lockdown to continue for much longer, this is a great way to stay connected and bring routine to the lives of our clients who rely on structure due to their autism and other learning difficulties.”

Many been tuning into Gabrielle’s sessions to sing, dance and learn Makaton sign language to some of their favourite songs.

After the live broadcast the videos stay on the page so people can also watch them later.

Some have been viewed thousands of times.
