Life Enrichment Workshop For Seniors

Interactive Therapeutic Workshop

This creative workshop is suitable for seniors interested in learning to play the harp in small groups on location or local community centers.

This special musical harp workshop is unlike any other as it combines the unique sound of the harp, social aspects, educational content – and each workshop can be themed to a place or special event. “Theming” proves especially popular when a participant has knowledge or experience with the theme topic – it makes for very lively sessions!

Unlike Any Other Social Music Workshop Perfect For Seniors

Perfect for small groups, this rainbow of harps lively workshop is a fun and colourfully engaging musical experience. Did I mention we bring bells?

Long Term Care Facilities Special Offer

Our innovative Life Enrichment program for seniors offers your LTC facility the option of weekly scheduled interactive therapeutic harp sessions which provide your residents an array of tangible and intangible benefits.

Therapeutic Harp is a sub-discipline of music therapy and has proven itself as a non-invasive, uplifting, beneficial and complementary holistic modality. There are quite literally no down-sides to experiencing therapeutic harp.

Gaining certification as a therapeutic harp practitioner and clinical musician takes commitment and dedication. There are only a handful of schools in the world today teaching the required skills. Add to that the costs and investment involved and it will be many years (if ever) before there is a surplus of therapeutic harpers available!

This presents your LTC with an excellent opportunity to set itself apart from the rest because Halton Harps Life Enrichment Workshop For Seniors is currently the ONLY certified regional provider of complementary therapeutic harp services in the area.

For more information about the program and its availability please get in touch. Remember, we can only help a select number of LTC facilities in Halton. So, if you’d like to know more – contact us today 416 505-4014.

Complete Experience – Everything Included

All musical equipment: Rainbow harps, shoulder straps, “RM” hand-bells and more are included in the program. Or, to suit your needs we facilitate 1 hour long workshops to introduce participants to the beautiful sounds of the harp strings. Workshops run for approximately 60 minutes – although with after-class conversations it’s more like 90 so we recommend you schedule accordingly.

Francesca’s innovative approach to senior support ensures each participant plays their part – whether plucking singles notes, playing chords or a gentle glissando. For residents with physical or cognitive challenges, Francesca adapts the experience even further to ensure everyone enjoys participating.
