Marina Cassidy

Merchiston Workshops - Workshop Space


In this workshop Marina will explore how the powerful yet soothing characteristics of the harp can be used in Music Therapy to bring comfort and healing and as a medium for expressing emotions in areas such as dementia care, palliative care and brain injury rehabilitation. We will explore the versatility of the harp, an instrument that can be rhythmic, playful, jazzy and harsh as required to respond to changing emotional dynamics in the therapeutic space.  We will IMPROVISE so BRING YOUR HARP!  Supported by the Northumbrian Branch of The Clarsach Society.
