A video showing the personal and musical impact of the Open School Orchestra (OSO) project at Pencalenick Special School. Alongside music from the students, an interview with headteacher, Helen Campbell, shows how a group of students with special needs and autism with significant communication issues came together and found their voices through music, both individually and collectively. This film charts their journey over the 9-month project, and shows some of the music they produced.

At the end of our first year of Open School Orchestras (OSO) in Cornwall, we've been thinking about next steps, and how to create progression routes for young SEN/D musicians. We created a short pilot project to explore the idea of inviting mainstream musicians to join the OSO in creative music workshops - integration following on from inclusion work. The short films below show the final performance, and discussion around how to build on the pilot, creating pathways through creative ensembles for those wanting to take their music further, beyond the classroom.

This discussion group has been set up as an online space for all things related to music-making, special edcuational needs and disabilities. There is a wealth of great practice from all around the country represented on the Youth Music Network, and it is intended that this group should provide a virtual connection to close some of the geographical gaps. If you are new to the group, please feel free to post and let everyone know a little a bit about yourself and what you do!
