Introducing STROKESTRA® at Home

Our Community & Education team are normally out and about, bringing our musicians and the joy of music-making to schools, care homes, homeless shelters and beyond. Since we’re not able to deliver our projects in person right now, we’ve put together a special series of videos featuring fun, music-based activities for you to have a go at from the comfort of your own homes. Based on one of our flagship community programmes, STROKESTRA®, designed with the fantastic Hull & East Riding Community Stroke Services and City Health Care Partnership to support stroke recovery for patients and their families, videos feature a range of gentle activities to help keep you active and entertained while at home.

Watch the STROKESTRA® at Home series here, or find them on our YouTube playlist.
