Based on the principles of Sing Out Loud!, an Esplanade community engagement programme conceptualised in partnership with Dementia Singapore in 2016, this three-day programme is designed to equip and empower arts practitioners with the skills and knowledge that goes into meaningful and quality singing sessions with persons living with dementia. Participants will learn how to put together an effective basic singing programme for persons with dementia through:
“As a choral musician and performer for many years of my life, it is important for me to ensure that music-making is meaningful and impactful. The trainer, Angie, was experienced and... held space for us to find our own voice in delivering the sessions through hands-on activities, assignments and constructive feedback. I am so glad that The Esplanade Academy organised this programme as it supports and equips community workers with the necessary skillsets in order to further impact the wider society.”
- Estelle Ng, Member of Community Choir Vox Camerata
“I felt very touched and inspired to want to continue to impact persons with and without dementia through the gift of music. (Angie’s) pedagogical approaches to teaching singing to persons with dementia and planning effective lessons were very applicable to my own practice.”
- Rachel Ho, Teaching Assistant at Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music
