How and Why.
So you know what Soundcastle does, but it’s the how and why that make it so special.
You’re in the right place!
There are many kinds of community music – from choirs, to drum circles, to family workshops. For Soundcastle, community music is all about generating new interactions within families, and between people. We co-create environments where people, no matter their story, can feel safe, heard and celebrated.
We make our own new music. But sometimes we sing nursery rhymes. We’re ok with that. Our approach is completely responsive to the needs of the people around us. Our programmes evolve with the people they support.
Do we have a syllabus? No. A book of activities? No. A session plan? No. So how does it work?
Well! If you’ve ever been in a Soundcastle session, you have probably experienced a deep sense of joy and connection. A feeling of being deeply welcomed and heard. Maybe creatively inspired? Maybe noticed. Our brilliant team of facilitators are highly attuned to the needs of people, both in terms of emotional wellbeing and creativity. We shift power by co-producing programmes that are owned by the community they serve.
As for our training and consultancy – same deal! Each piece of work is unique and exists for a moment in time. We design bespoke training programmes for organisations, ensuring the content and approach is tailored to the exact needs of your team.
Maybe you are looking for how to create a truly inclusive space for families? Or wondering how youth voice could change your delivery? Maybe you would like to energise your staff team for a new term? Or offer a space for them to process challenging interactions? We are here to help.
We believe that you hold the power and you know your people best. We are just good at asking questions and offering sessions that help to open your thinking. Everything we do is rooted in coaching and mentoring and we thrive when we see positive change happening for the organisations we support.
