Dear (lecturer name),

I am interested in the following free online training course from Playlist for Life – the UK’s leading music and dementia charity. In order to access the course, a lecturer or course organiser must sign up on my behalf, so I am sending you the information to express my interest.

Playlists for Students:

Playlist for Life has been training healthcare professionals since 2013. The training introduces the concept of personal playlists: an innovative and powerful tool to help care for a person living with dementia.

They train people in the NHS, care homes, home care services, and individual healthcare professionals. The training is now open to students, and is free for the remainder of the academic year.
