The Spitz - music for wellbeing

The Spitz Charitable Trust brings music workshops to nursing homes, day centres, hospices and other places of potential isolation in disadvantaged London boroughs. Set up by Jane Glitre, the charity draws on some of London’s finest musicians from a reservoir of talent who performed in the original Spitz, a wonderful live music venue that once beat out its rhythm at the heart of Spitalfields market.  
The Spitz Charitable Trust participatory music sessions ease anxiety, encourage interaction and improve wellbeing and memory through mental and physical participation. You can catch some of this in this video. I have known Jane since my time in War Child and as director of the Pavarotti Music Centre in Mostar, when she was a great supporter of our music work with children in conflict. Great that today she is proving that the power of music is a healer across all generations.
