​District Musicians CIC

Professional musicians Sophie, Nick and Elle completed Music in Healthcare apprenticeships with Opus Music CIC in 2017.

Forming District Musicians CIC in 2018, they are currently delivering their debut project in Cubley Court, Derby funded by Arts Council England.

Working in pairs, District Musicians offer high quality music interventions for older people in a secure dementia assessment unit.

Playing at the bedside and in communal areas, they invite patient participation using accessible instruments.

District Musicians strive to humanise the clinical environment and increase wellbeing. Their weekly visits are greatly valued by patients and staff alike.
