The Soundcastle Theory of Practice is a values-led approach to collaborative music making in community settings. It is the outcome of several years of practice-based research and we have found joy in breaking down the theory to gain a deeper understanding of what we do and why we do it!
This approach advocates for local music made by and for local people. It is an evolving practice which continues to adapt to new settings and challenges, growing from community and context. The ultimate aim is to effectively use music as a tool for enhanced connectedness and wellbeing.
