Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

GET PLUCKY: Sheila Crowe tries out the harp with Ruth Butcher at Chal­font Lodge care home. Be­low, Sathiya Ku­ganathan PEO­PLE at a care home were en­ter­tained when a harp player went to visit them.

Peo­ple living at Chal­font Lodge in Den­ham Lane, Chal­font St Peter were treated to a per­for­mance on the Paraguayan harp by Ruth Butcher on Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 6.

The mu­sic ses­sion was held to en­sure that all of the peo­ple living in the home were able to en­joy the mu­sic.

Ac­tiv­i­ties co-or­di­na­tor Hay­ley Clark said: “Our regular harp ses­sions have proven to be popular amongst res­i­dents where they are ac­tively en­cour­aged to play the harp them­selves, build­ing a sense of mu­si­cal­ity with each in­di­vid­ual.

“Res­i­dents noted how not only was the harp very re­lax­ing but they also en­joyed experiencing the vi­bra­tions that came from strum­ming the in­stru­ment along with the dif­fer­ent notes and tones they were able to pro­duce.”
