‘Making Music Matters’ Creative approaches to music in schools

Wednesday, March 2

Music really does matter in schools but often requires creative and collaborative approaches to secure its vital and life-affirming place as part of a rich and balanced curriculum.

This special music themed webinar will spotlight the creative good practice of two south west music education hubs. Join Lewis Gibbs, Music Education Hub Lead for Devon & Torbay and Clair McColl, Strategic Lead for Dorset Music Service as they share a number of projects and their positive impact on children, staff and the wider community.

Projects presented will include:

Creativity Through Music: a primary school action research project led by Sonopera CiC

Soundwaves: a Youth Music funded project led by Daisi Arts working with both primary and secondary schools

Creativity Through Online Music Mentoring: lessons learned from the Youth Music funded Inclusive Dorset project piloting new ways of working with teenagers

Inclusion through Creative Ensembles: an overview of how creative approaches to group music-making sessions can support more young people on their musical journeys.

Once you have booked, you will be sent an email confirmation with instructions on how to join the event.
