… or more accurately, to be human is to BE music – the steady rhythm of our hearts, the melody of the rise and fall of our breath, the counterpoint of our many interactions…
Come and join us at ConsciousCafe Oundle and let Eleanor Gibson help you connect with the music inside.
Lifemusic connects us to the life within us, to each other and to the flow of time. We have no choice but to be in the moment. Making, receiving and responding to sounds, embraced and supported by the flow of the music.
Lifemusic has four guiding principles:
No musical experience or training is needed. We use ‘instant access’ instruments that are easy and intuitive to play – or you can bring your own instrument along. Simple musical ideas act as a starting point for improvisation and the music has a life of its own.
In the words of one practitioner:
‘Just one of the many things I love about Lifemusic is its spontaneity, unpredictability, kaleidoscope of surprises, the way it moves me (emotionally and physically), thrills me and provides the brushes and paintpots which create pictures 'in and out of my imagination'.’
Eleanor has been facilitating music sessions with children and with adults in a variety of settings for nearly 30 years. Her approach is fundamentally person centred and always seeks to encourage and support each person’s ‘inner music’. She qualified as a Lifemusic practitioner in December 2014 and was delighted to find a method which validates and supports her approach and which makes music making accessible to absolutely everybody.
