Music is Medicine is written by John Osborne.
John has spent over 35 years as a provider of health and social care in both the public and private sectors. As a talented musician he combined his experience of caring and music to create ‘Soundtrack to My Life’, a music book for people with dementia. In 2012 it won a national care award for innovation. John is also the author of Soundtrack to My Life Fink Cards, and has developed other ‘Music in Care’ tools including end of life, carers and young people. Following his own experience of fighting a rare form of cancer he developed Music and Medicine for people dealing with medical treatment.
In 2012 he established JoCo Learning & Development to develop and deliver ‘Music in Care’ training for health and social care staff. John is a passionate believer that high quality care is a right and not a privilege.
