What's On

Read on for a list of our current groups and activities.

 

Glasgow Spectrum Musicglad tuesdays

This is one of our core projects and involves individual and group music sessions for children aged 6 – 18 who have autism. Individual sessions are for children who find group work challenging but thrive when given the opportunity to develop their skills. Group sessions offer the opportunity to develop musical and social skills in a safe and encouraging environment. The individual sessions often feed into the group sessions. These classes involve a mixture of structured music-making through rhythm, games, and songs, and a chance for each child to develop their creative abilities. We give each child a chance to grow their improvisation and composition skills and learn to play instruments. Hidden musical abilities are often discovered and nurtured within these sessions. The classes currently take place on a Monday, Tuesday and a Wednesday between 3:30pm and 6:30pm, at Cathcart Trinity Church, Glasgow.

Glasgow Spectrum Music is currently running at full capacity, however if you would like your child to be added to our waiting list, please fill in this form and we will be in touch with you to discuss.

We currently run three adult music groups:

MUSAC on Mondays from 1:00pm-2:00pm in Livingston

Glad to Hear It! on Mondays from 2:00pm-3:00pm in Glasgow

Eastfield Lifestyles from 1:30pm-2:30pm on Fridays in South Lanarkshire

These classes are full of singing, dancing, vocalising, drumming, rhythm, sensory exploration and wonderful soundscapes. Everyone attends with a support assistant who also takes part in the group. One of the great joys of these groups is that regardless of age or ability, everyone is united by a common musical goal and the sense of togetherness that is apparent when developing or performing a piece of music is a privilege to watch.
