5  Rationale

1  Current songs


2  The list

The songs have been selected from a long list here.  Reader contribution and comment welcomed via here.



4  Aims


The main aim is for patients to migrate to the song sessions when they feel they want to.  No coercion is planned.


Patients who sing on a regular basis might be encouraged in due course, to decide how we operate.   They could be encouraged to think about ways to increase the group size.


It is hoped that patients will use musical instruments in due course.


The mix of old and new songs will change.  "New" means entirely new and not songs within this series of pages.


It is hoped to meet the other song coordinator - Tuesdays?

5  Rationale
