Glad to say i have finished the dissertation this evening at the most i have even written at a 23,543 word count. That is made up of everything including introduction to the conclusion. The paper will be publish around May 2015 through Abertay University.
The title of the paper is “Live Musical Performance Within a Palliative Care Setting, a musicians guide on the important factors to consider while performing for those in care”.
It has taken nearly 8 months of research and writing to get this stage and the final hand in date will be the 1st of May 2015. It has been a great project which has been very challenging but i hope the key stakeholders of hospitals and administrators of funds for palliative care unit get their hands on it and can see how important music is to people in care.
The best part of the data collection is in the final presentation of how simple it is for musicians to forget the variables that make up a successful concert. Its so easy to forget the basics sometimes.
