Join us for an afternoon of inspirational presentations and discussion around inclusive music-making for children and young people in special school settings.
We’ll open with a keynote from Professor Adam Ockelford, founder and chair of the Sounds of Intent Charity; a trustee of Live Music Now and Founder and Trustee of The Amber Trust, supporting blind and partially sighted children in their pursuit of music.
Music teacher Caroline Harris from Beechlawn, Hillsborough will offer a practical insight into their current residency with a Live Music Now musician. Gary Day, Garden of Music, who has extensive experience of using tech to facilitate accessible music-making, and is a trainer and mentor for Live Music Now’s Inspire programme, will present examples of current, free online apps for making music. Before, during and afterwards we will have iPads set up for hands-on demos with our musicians.
This is an opportunity for teachers, musicians, practitioners, music therapists and anyone who works, or would like to work, in the field of inclusive music-making to share ideas, network and get hands on with some popular apps.
Parents of children and young people are also welcome.
Presented in association with Live Music Now, a UK-wide organisation that delivers social impact through the connective power of music.
