Thank you to Jojo Lander and her musician colleagues

The Trustees would like to say a huge thank you to Jojo Lander and her musician colleagues for choosing to raise money for the SMTT throughout 2018 and 2019. We are very grateful for their support. Please read on to find out more about their fund raising events.

Recent fund raising events have included a series of three afternoon ‘Schubertiad’ chamber concerts given by the Tannoch Ensemble in Glasgow. Jojo Lander, Music Therapist, BMGIM Practitioner and professional cellist, performed with long-standing friends and professional musician colleagues who first met as teenagers in the Glasgow Schools Symphony Orchestra and went on to the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland and the Royal College of Music in London.

One of the musicians said: “We all play professionally in different ensembles but still feel a special bond when we come together again to make music after all this time.” Programmes have included Messiaen ‘Quartet for the End of Time’, Schubert’s String and Trout Quintets and Mozart and Brahms’ Clarinet Quintets. Invited guests are wined and dined after each concert and have been extremely generous, donating approximately £1,800 for the SMTT throughout 2018 and 2019.

Professor Laurel Young: The importance of music for persons living with dementia

Research and anecdotal evidence as well as the presenter’s clinical experience indicate that knowledgeable use of music can improve quality of life for persons living with dementia (PWLD). However, it also appears that best practices for PLWD are not being fully realized and are generally not well understood. The presenter will outline rationale underlying the need for a sustainable best practices model for the use of music in dementia care. She will also refer to her own related research projects.
