Together with Music are thrilled to announce an exciting new partnership with Youth Sports Trust. This is an innovative pilot project combining the worlds of music and sport to deliver health and wellbeing outcomes for both the young and the older generations.
2022. The year of Together with Music Training and Project delivery
The Together with Music programme passionately strives to support those most vulnerable across the UK through intergenerational music connections.
Since the launch of Together with Music in 2020, the platform has been host to over 1,250 organisations across the health, social care, education and arts sector establishing so many new, intergenerational connections and demonstrating that during a challenging time of distance and isolation, music prevails and has inspired incredible connection. In 2022, we are focussing on supporting our members in bringing their local connections to life through our innovative projects and bespoke training!
“I can see the difference Together with Music is making and the multitude of benefits that come from connections between generations and communities. Together with Music is creative and responsive and is going to be transformational for overall wellbeing and quality of life.”
Professor Martin Green OBE, CEO of Care England

What is TwM Training?
The training is delivered by the Intergenerational Music Making (IMM) team as part of the Together with Music programme and aims to inspire, equip, and further embed the use of music and more specifically intergenerational practice in care, health, community, and education settings. The training is shaped and bespoke to the needs of each group.
The intergenerational training delivered to TwM members follows this ethos of accessibility and empowerment for people to adopt music as part of their current practices, whether a musician or not.

“We are all inherently musical beings. We all have a relationship with it, and we can all engage with it.”

What is a TwM project?
Together with Music projects are delivered by trained Music Therapists and Community Musicians and aim to support new intergenerational connections in establishing and embedding the connection into their particular setting. Our projects are co-produced with participants and often consist of music making, song-writing, choral singing, art, movement and so much more. It is all about providing spaces for people to share their stories, raise their voices and connect with those around them. In the past our projects have seen to:
Reduce isolation and loneliness
Support those living with dementia
Improve self-confidence and self-esteem
Empower and champion individuals
Contribute to stronger community cohesion
