AN ENDLESS PASSION FOR MUSIC
About Amy Joan
I am a singer songwriter and have been for four years. I enjoy writing and performing and have been credited for my song writing by the BBC with my track – Cold Eyes which had radio play on BBC introducing Leeds and another of my tracks – Magic Played on BBC introducing York at my brief time living there.
Since picking up the guitar during my time at university studying Performance Art, I have performed a wide range of gigs from Music Festivals to Restaurants and perform regularly in Cities, Villages and Towns across the UK.
To us, music is a tool, a tool that we use to bring people back into the moment to begin sharing positive experiences. Be Present’s delivers workshops adapted to fit the needs of a specific group. One example being a group of participants living in a care home for mental health.
The aim of the workshops is to build a community in what can often be an isolating environment, ensuring inclusivity by any means necessary. It also aims to encourage enjoyable interactivity between staff and residents of a nature that might not occur day to day.
