Here I want to look back on a collaborative project I was involved with, where young people with learning disabilities formed a band using accessible music technology.  

Research project Connect Resound brings inclusive, effective music education to excluded and remote areas around the UK. 

Jo Gibson, musician and PhD candidate for the International Centre for Community Music (ICCM) at York St John University, reflects on a 3-day summer school for Children in Care in North Yorkshire. The pilot project was devised by Jo as part of a PhD practice-as-research study, and delivered in partnership with NYMAZ and the North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) Virtual School, with funding from the National Foundation for Youth Music. All partners hope to see the project developed further in the near future.

Event type: 
Training, Networking

Phill Howley, professional musician, producer and specialist in music engagement in challenging circumstances, blogs about Life on Shuffle, a creative music project for young people.

In part 1 and part 2 I talked about how we created the music for several different songs out of jamming together with digital technology... In this part we finish the song by writing words and using performance as a composition tool.

As a community music based organisation we are finding it increasingly difficult to engage with schools - even when offering our workshops and projects for free! We thought it was just us but it seems this is a wider issue...

The first project phase of Readipop's new Urban Orchestra programme worked in Reading and Slough from September 2015 through to spring 2016.
