Tutor: Frances Attwood
Frances Attwood trained as a secondary school teacher then began her career teaching piano and violin. She discovered another side to music at Great Ormond Street Hospital, seeing the benefits to children, parents and staff. Then, as a primary school teacher, she recognised music’s cohesive force. In 2001 she retrained as a music therapist. Working at the Coda Music Centre, she both taught and practiced therapy with all ages from two to ninety-nine, with people with a huge range of disabilities, from autism and learning disability to those with physical challenges. She spent five years in Uganda, again working in dual roles, appreciating music’s social importance. In 2017 she completed her MA in music therapy, researching the benefits of music for people with dementia, and now runs a dementia group. She also runs a choir for asylum seekers. She is passionate about using music to enable everyone to participate.
