UpBEAT!

 

UpBEAT! is a soundLINCS service to support the health and wellbeing of the community, and people with mental illness, which Social Prescribers and Health Care Professionals and Providers can ‘Tap Into’ and refer with confidence the use of music.

Music is fantastic for good health and well-being, a strong, cognitive stimulus, ideal for social engagement, mental health and strengthening the brain’s executive function, reducing stress, depression, dementia and making people feel good!

This very powerful art form has the ability to appeal to many people. This is due to numerous types and ways to access music. A positive musical experience for a participant can only be achieved when ensuring a good understanding of expectation/desires (often unknown at the outset) is married with the correct musical opportunity.

This is where soundLINCS can help with UpBEAT!

The UpBEAT! service is triggered through a referral from a Social Prescriber, Health Provider, and/or Self-referral. soundLINCS then ensures a clear and prompt process for responding;

  1. Referrer contacts soundLINCS and provides person’s name, contact details, and any essential health context

 

  1. soundLINCS core staff contact person via phone/Zoom to explore their musical interests, ambitions, background and discuss possibilities and opportunities to ensure a positive appropriate musical experience.

 

  1. soundLINCS provide a music related activity, either as a bespoke session delivered by a professional Music Facilitator, or an introduction, sign posting, or other intervention. Activities could vary from 1-2-1 to group work; from online to face to face; examples include learning an instrument, writing a song, exploring music technology, singing with a choir, playing with a rock or pop band, creating playlists or finding music on the internet.

 

  1. soundLINCS continue to provide further activities/support in discussion with participant and/or Social Prescriber.

As part of the UpBEAT! service, we have partnered with local groups and organisations across Lincolnshire

to bring a wide variety of music opportunities.

Our current groups are listed below with new groups being added all the time.

Sessions are open to all, we just ask you to let us know if you want to attend through a referral form

FAQ’s

Have you any more examples of musical activities?

  • A participant may love singing but never had the confidence to sing with others or as part of a choir – we can work with the person to help increase their musical confidence and introduce them to a group or choir which suits them.

 

  • The dream is to write a song or music – time with one of our amazing Music Facilitators exploring the creative process will have the participant song writing and composing music or even creating dance tracks.

 

  • The person used to play the guitar in a band and would like to do that again – we can help create or signpost suitable groups and if needed, help settle you in.

 

  • Health Practitioners and/or Social Prescribers are aware of a few people who have an interest in music – we can create a ‘Music Club’ and organise music sessions to bring people together and explore their interests in music.

 

  • A participant enjoys walking and loves music – we can join their passions together by arranging a walk that involves recording the sounds they hear to use in creating their own sound track or sound tapestry.

 

  • Maybe a person would just like to talk about music or create their own playlist.

Whatever the type or genre of music, be it rock and pop, folk, world music, jazz, classical or creating their own sounds – we can help using the most appropriate way for the person referred.
