Jo White - Wishing Well Programme Manager


As a facilitator and project manager, Jo has been part of the team at Rhythmix since 2007, creating music programmes to help vulnerable people find their voice. A lifelong musician, she is committed to developing the use of live music-making in healthcare settings to create environments where people feel safe and heard. Jo is a co-founder of the National Alliance of Musicians in Healthcare and is included in the Independent's Happy List of people who make life better. Jo gave a presentation about Wishing Well at TEDxBrighton in 2015. She talked about how music helps people in hospital to regain a sense of control and how the soundtracks we build throughout our lives can be used to improve quality of life for people with dementia.
