Music is such a powerful tool. It builds confidence and creativity, giving children and young people a means of expressing emotions and the chance to make new friends.
We team up with the super talented Tinderbox Collective – an Edinburgh-based group of artists and gigging musicians – to bring weekly music making workshops to the hospital.
No two sessions are ever the same. Whether it’s a large group performing together in a playroom, individual bedside jam sessions, song writing classes or a baby’s first lullaby; Tinderbox help children and young people to regain a sense of control during their time in hospital while also offering an outlet for creative expression.
