Introduction to playlists

Music can help people living with dementia. In this introductory course we’ll show you how to get started.

  • We’ll introduce you to the power of music.
  • We’ll explain what dementia is and how it can affect someone.
  • We’ll show you how the find the best music and make a playlist.
  • And we’ll introduce you to some of the amazing people with dementia and carers we have worked with over the years.

The course includes interviews with experts, video case studies, and simple quizzes to teach you what you need to know to get started and give you the confidence to try using playlists yourself.

The course takes about two hours. You study it in your own time – whenever works best for you. And once you’ve completed it you can return whenever you like to refresh your knowledge.   

Our students tell us it’s ‘fun’, ‘fascinating’ and ‘inspiring’ so why not sign up and see where playlists can take you!

I was extremely moved by all the stories I have just witnessed, the course has introduced me to the for reconnection and comfort. I was totally blown away at how powerful this medium is with those who have dementia.
