Experienced sensitive musicians offering singing and music in the community and in social care

County Antrim Kirsty Orr     
Choir Leader and Community Music Facilitator

My current music making is wide and varied, with groups of all ages and stages, and individual work as well, I lead seven choirs, all very different.

An 80 stong Women’s community chorus
A 16 voice chamber style choir
A drop in positive mental health choir
A choir for home educated kids and their parents
A workplace choir
A church choir
A Dementia friendly choir for people with dementia and their carers

I also run music groups in care homes, most recently setting up ten care home choirs run by volunteers, following a multi sensory programme written by myself called Musical Memories.

I run monthly community Drum Circles using African drums as I am a qualified Rhythm to Recovery facilitator. I am working for Mindwise and have worked for the Wave Trauma centre to deliver mental health wellnesss programmes using singing and drumming.

In addition to these groups, I teach students on a one to one basis, in singing for fun using a Natural Voice approach, piano, clarinet and saxophone. I also produce corporate shows where I go into a business with a choreographer and work with volunteers to create a stage show, all to raise money for charity.
I also run singing workshops.

Other life experience and qualifications

I worked as a primary school teacher specialising in music for over twenty years, before going freelance three years ago. I am a busy mum with four daughters, acting as a permanent taxi driver and homework assistant. I have a specific interest in Music for Mental Health benefits, and in Music for older people.
