In this new podcast, Anita Holford, co-editor of Music Education Works, is talking with Bev Foster, Founding Director of Room 217, a Canadian social enterprise that uses music to change the culture of care.

We talk about:

  • The two questions that inspired her to start Room 217
  • The initial creation of music tools for carers
  • The three-pronged training model: from building confidence to realising an initiative and becoming a music care advocate
  • And we finish with three tips to help carers begin to use music to support wellbeing and care.

You can access the podcast via a blog on our main website –
