Volunteer in DMU Music's exciting Hear and Now project working with people affected by dementia


If you have a passion for music and enjoy working with new people, DMU Music may have the project for you.

Hear and Now will bring together DMU students, local primary schools, members of the Philharmonia Orchestra and people affected by dementia.

The project is a unique venture with Leicester Musical Memory Box, a singing group for people affected by dementia and other memory problems.
