Workshops and Teaching

Lyndon has worked as a music and horticultural facilitator for many years, working with people of all ages and from a wide variety of backgrounds. This work has taken him into a huge array of settings, from schools; a pupil referral unit; care homes and hospices; collaborations with equine assisted therapists; and even running regular sessions at a secure psychiatric facility. He mainly uses mixed percussion and handpan as his tools to connect with people and help encourage creativity and build confidence and self esteem.

Inclusive music making workshops and therapeutic sessions.

Whilst the demographics of people that Lyndon works with vary enormously, the underlying principle is always the same - inspiring people to want to make music regardless of their ability or experience. His sessions and workshops are truly inclusive. He effortlessly weaves together the history and stories of different instruments, rhythms and cultures from across the world; interesting and in-depth knowledge of handpan from the perspective of someone who has been involved in building them; and fun, accessible approaches to intuitive and improvised music making. His energy and passion for the music that he loves is contagious. Please get in touch if you would like to find out more or to book Lyndon for a workshop.

"Lyndon builds strong relationships with pupils and has made a very positive impact on many of the children who attend Upton St James. The pupils enthusiastically engage with his sessions, which are wide-ranging and meet the pupils needs in a variety of ways, including music and gardening along with therapeutic approaches. Lyndon is incredibly flexible and accommodating and retains a calm, nurturing ethos at all times. Many of the pupils in Year 6 last year named Lyndon's sessions as the highlight of their year. I highly recommend him and his company."
