The method employed by Music & Resilience has been developed over time within the team, and is conceived in terms of musical substance, in what it means to be a musician with or without the instrument in one’s hand. We consider music as a matter that is not exclusively relegated to mere performance, but as a way of being in the everyday: an attention to listening, to the tone of voice, to touch and closeness, to the interchange of roles, to the possibility of communicating at several levels and/or languages, in each person’s own time.
Time, dedication and acceptance are three flexible and fundamental cornerstones around which our work revolves, while at the same time allowing for continuous revision and evolution.
We encourage and enhance the expression of individual differences capable of highlighting the uniqueness of each and every one, with a person-centred approach, in the awareness and belief that skills are an additional value and not a commodity to be showcased; an asset when they can be passed on from the individual to the group and vice versa. We are aware that all the different elements of the musical matter are the backbone of a collective work, that each individuality is the seed that contributes to the creation of the whole.
