Here is a list of services Sarah can offer:
Sarah is passionate about the benefit that music can bring to the lives of others, in particular those with dementia and their families. A large part of the work Sarah does involves singing in care homes where she performs a variety of genres of music including 40s, 50s, 60s, jazz and musical theatre. She also performs a selection of Scottish music for Burns Night and St Andrews Day. Sarah has received great feedback from these performances from residents, relative and staff members and they are often the starting point for reminiscing about the time period of the music.
