Guest speakers:

  • Angela Harrison – Music Therapist

    Angela qualified as a Music Therapist in 1995 and led the team of the North Yorkshire Music Therapy Centre until retiring last October. Angela specialised in working with children and has presented widely at international conferences and published in several books and journals. As Commissioner for Public Relations, World Federation of Music Therapy she is passionate about her profession. Angela is a viola player (ex Hallé) and enjoys playing in chamber and orchestral ensembles. She has a long connection with the School of Music, University of Leeds, recently collaborating in ‘Music Therapy: Context, Access and Communities’.


  • Simon Glenister – Noise Solution

    Noise Solution delivers ‘one to one’ music mentoring programs with people facing challenging circumstances. Often focused on electronic music and beat making, each session is enhanced, supported, and reinforced through the use of its own bespoke social media platform. Noise Solution's strengths-based approach safely shares participants’ weekly music session highlights, via this platform, with their family and professional key-workers.

    By making people feel in control, like they're good at something and, in turn, sharing that experience, we fulfil a number of known psychological needs required for wellbeing to flourish. In turn, improved wellbeing is proven to lead to better engagement, health, and educational outcomes. Noise Solution has been independently found to be highly statistically significant in positively impacting upon wellbeing.
