What songs what songs? I have been able to pull together a good set of suggested songs from Music in Hospitals which covers a lot of genres. Scottish songs, Pop songs from the 50’s and even a little country.
These songs have been going well but im continually getting asked for different songs all the time. The first time I was asked for a song I handled it wrong. I just said I didn’t know it and sorry. The look on the woman’s face was terrible I felt I had really let her down, I spoke with one of the other Music in Hospitals performers on this and he gave me some solid advice. He said if he was in that situation he has learned to respond….
“Im sorry I don’t know that one but il tell you what I will learn that for next time if you promise to be here? How about this one from the same genre?”
He tells me it works a treat and he gets great engagement from the audience after that and it always results in a smile.
