Music Mind Social Hub

Wellbeing for the mind through music
with Hayley McKay

  • Tuesday 12 – 1.30pm

Join us for our free weekly sessions Every Tuesday between 12 – 1.30pm. Open to people of all ages and
musical abilities, Music Mind is a new incentive which sets out to improve mental health and wellbeing through singing, song-writing and music production.

The sessions, which will be held over a year-long period, are led by Hayley Mckay, a leading vocal coach,
music tutor and professional singer-songwriter. She has worked extensively in supporting people throughout the UK and in local communities.

She said: “It’s quite incredible how engaging in music making can really lift your spirits. I have worked with
people of all ages and abilities, and I have witnessed first-hand how much joy and the positive benefits it
brings to all.

The weekly, informal sessions are free to attend, and aim to be informal, relaxing, fun and
interactive, with the opportunity to make new friends, write songs and find your inner voice with talents you never knew you had.
