Converge Music Report

A report on the impact and benefits of shared musical experience with adults who use mental health services within Converge, a social enterprise in a university setting.


Often, people ask the questions, “ So what is it about the music?”, “Would students get the same out attending a pottery course?”, “ Why music?”

The Converge Music Research Project met the claims of the research to evidence not only that Converge Music Courses benefitted participants, but also, that there were a wide range of psycho-social and benefits of music education. Importantly, the shared music experience emerged as a key driver to support psycho- social change for Converge Music Students.
