Jo White

13 years working as a musician and project manager in community settings, a series of fortunate events and meetings with like minded people all led to the development of the Wishing Well Music in Healthcare programme which now brings creative music making to the bedsides of children and older people in Hospitals and Hospices across Sussex.

Jo is interested in using live music to create environments where people feel safe and heard, encouraging a healthcare culture that helps staff interact with the person, as well as treating the health condition; to use music to reach the places that medicine cannot reach.

Jo is an accordionist, gardener and horse rider. She lives in East Sussex with her partner and their beloved dog Mosey.
