My Portable Piano now has a brand new made to measure shiny clear Covid Screen.

Many Thanks to Direct Plastics Sheffield S20

  UPDATE   September 2020   Covid Policy and Schedule

All equipment will be sanitised prior to use on the day of a booking

Musical Instruments will not be used for the present time although you can provide your own Tambourines and other percussive instruments.

A mask and disposable gloves are always worn while setting up the piano and only removed when I am sitting at the piano behind my piano screen. 

Arriving will be scheduled 1 hour earlier before residents enter the lounge to minimise contact during setting up.

Packing away will only commence after residents have left and the room is empty. No extra fee will be made for the extended time.

Outside Shows are possible in dry weather. The only requirement is a plug socket to enable my 30m Extension Cord to go through a window to power the piano.

 Lyric Sheets (if needed) are laminated and will be sanitised prior to use or I can email you my Microsoft Word files to print your own.

Hello – I’m Kamla and I offer 1 hour or 1½ hour  entertainment shows/music therapy in the form of Solo Piano Music to listen, dance, sing along to and join in with Tambourines and Bells for Care Homes, Assisted Living Residences and Dementia Cafes & Groups.
Musical activity for stimulating memory is becoming increasingly popular as its value has been proven to help enormously. Dementia is currently receiving a lot of publicity exposure, helped by mainstream television programmes such as The Dementia Choir, Living with Dementia and Miriam's Dead Good Adventure, as well as  the brilliant BBC Drama 'Care' starring Sheridan Smith and Alison Steadman.
My Piano Repertoire has evolved over a 40 Year career of professional playing and now consists of over 2000 songs and pieces played in a piano style that makes them recognisable particularly to people diagnosed with any condition affecting memory recall.

I play my entire repertoire from memory - I'm very thankful for my skills and the ability to bring them to other people and have a fun hour or two of musical hours together.  This means I don't work from a set playlist, which enables me to play more of any music that's going down well at the time and play requests.
What Do I Do that's Different?
I have devised different themed sections for my shows to keep the residents involved in what I’m playing. This enables interaction and participation in a fun informal way as well as being entertaining. It provides a lovely morning or afternoon of activity whilst at the same time bringing the therapy that live music can do for stimulating memory.
Sing a Long Time 
We’ll Meet Again, Over the Rainbow, Delilah and songs from well known musicals are very popular. The 'Pub Sing a Long' Medleys go down particularly well as the lyric sheets are rarely needed - Many dementia residents begin to remember the words very quickly - I see this happen so often and makes my job an absolute joy! I now have a collection of percussion instruments including 20 Tambourines and 20 Jingle Bells to encourage joining in. 

Lyric Sheets available in Size 14 Font provided on the day, or Word Documents can be sent by email to enable you to print your own –
Currently available - Mary Poppins 5 songs, Oliver 4 songs, Sound of Music 3 songs, Delilah, We'll Meet Again, Pub Sing a Long Medley, Over the Rainbow, Edelweiss - More coming

 Guessing the Music - Piano Charades 
Film Music (100 Themes), TV Programmes & Adverts, Film Themes, Eurovision Song Contest, Musical Shows, Guess the  Theme – All the songs have a common link - Summer, Sunshine, Rain, Flying & Sky, Love for Valentines, different Colour Themes, and Snow/Winter for Christmas.
This involves some chat from me as I ask a question - then give increasingly easier clues and little stories until someone guesses the answer. The TV Theme time always makes for great fun as everyone tries to guess the programme such as Steptoe and Son, Fawlty Towers, the Soaps and even the Muppet Show! I have over 60 Themes to use. 
  Classical Music Time
 Well known Classical Piano Pieces and music from the Opera and Ballet. For Example – Strauss Waltzes, Music from Carmen and Swan Lake that residents love to hum and clap along or dance to.
   Classical Piano Evening Concerts are also available as provided to Loxley Park, Sheffield.
 Request Time  When I ask people for a favourite song. My Repertoire includes hundreds of songs from popular artists such as - Frank Sinatra, Barry Manilow, The Beatles, The Carpenters, Abba, Elton John and many more hits from the 60's and 70s and 80s.
Grande Finale  To Finish there are several themes I choose from depending on the audience. When the Union Jack Hat is put on it means a Last Night of the Proms Sing a long medley with Union Jack Flags to wave. But let the others be a surprise!
Christmas 2019 -  The Skaters Waltz
I cater mostly for Care Facilities in the Sheffield and Scunthorpe areas in South Yorkshire. Derbyshire and Lincolnshire, although booking arrangements can be made for me to play anywhere in the UK with my beautiful vintage style Full Size Portable Stage Piano.

This takes me approximately 20 minutes to set up and pack away.



New for 2020/21 - Socially Distanced 1 Hour Shows can be set up in your garden area - as long as it doesn't rain. I have a new Sanitised 30 Metre Extension Cord that can be fed through an open window with a socket close by. Indoor Shows, I carry Masks and Hand Sanitiser at all times.
