We at I.C.E are passionate about helping people improve their mental health and well-being.
We believe that music really is the best medicine and look to help people combat some of the barriers that can get in the way when you live in a rurally isolating area or an area of deprivation.
Our aim is to provide music and movement-based groups which not only teach important skills and improve health but also help improve mental health, tackle feelings of isolation and loneliness, break down social barriers and give a sense of involvement in the wider community.
We are running 2 very successful groups at the moment which cover ages from birth to 25 years old.
Our Tots Tunes group welcomes many families every term for a block of 8 sessions and is successfully improving feelings of social isolation and helping with integration into the community for many families whilst allowing young children to enjoy music and movement.
Our RocksKool sessions include a beginner’s class, advanced class and a weekly Jam Session. Our main aim in RocksKool is to give young people of all abilities and from all walk of life access to music tuition and the feeling of inclusion in our RocksKool band.
Our RocksKool also provides the experience of live performance and studio recording. We hope that our input will reduce the chance of young people getting involved in anti-social behaviour and improve their well-being whilst improving their musical abilities in the process.
I.C.E are always looking at new adventures to take us forward and look forward to expanding our catchment area in the near future.
