Abstract

The impact of the “songbirds” projects and the outcomes taught helped multi-agency professionals to understand the importance of music in health and education, and encouraged them to adopt practices that exploit the outcomes of the projects undertaken to date. With presentations, examples through case studies, and experiencing live music as provided for the children (including active participation in musicmaking with small sound-makers and toys), participants were exposed to strategies that can be available to them to communicate with, pacify, and stimulate children with complex health care needs, intense anxiety, and procedural phobia. A physical and skill-based toolkit was provided to participants, the use of which could constitute change in practice and therefore impact in the real world.
