How can we sustain and improve the access to and quality of music education over the next 3 years? If this question interests you do read on!

These are some notes on my experiences and reflections on being a trainee on the Hope Creative project so far, having attended 6 sessions since November 2015. I have been recording what we have done and where we have done it and how it was from my point of view.

At NYMAZ we recently agreed a set of "principles for musically-inclusive working", and we wanted to share them with you. What do you think of them? Does your organisation have a similar set of princples? Comments happily received!

Calling all music teachers and community music leaders! Give your young musicians the chance to perform as part of a large-scale orchestra on a world class stage.

Does anyone know of a mentoring qualification that might be adapted to accredit tutors using music to mentor vulnerable pupils, in and beyond schools?

We are coming to the end of our SWAG delivery for Wiltshire. One of the key elements of our delivery is our Independent Learning plans.

At last week's gathering, Kathryn, Phil, Rob, Anita and Sophie, gave presentations on the above topics - here are their slides.

In the 'sharing what we do' session at the beginning of the final Musical Inclusion gathering, we asked delegates to come prepared with an outline of how they're addressing both 'integrating inclusion into the work of your hub', and 'quality in music work with children in challenging circumstances'. Below are the handouts they produced for the session. Fascinating reading from projects all over the UK.

Integrating musically inclusive approaches into the work of music education hubs is one of our two big topics for the remainder of the Musical Inclusion programme (the other is ‘quality in music work in children in challenging circumstances’). Last week we posted a blog about a framework that my help you to explore this. This week, we’ve been talking to Debra King, Director of Brighter Sound about what she’s learned are the ingredients for successfully integrating inclusion in the work of hubs.

Thanks to Emily Foulkes and Jane Staffieri of CYMAZ Music, and Tanya Moore, head of Cornwall music education hub, for joining me at the Google Hangout.

Others either couldn’t make it or had a few problems getting in to the hangout, so we aim to run another one on the same topic so more people can join.

That said, it was a great hangout - some really useful advice and ideas shared from a Hub that’s clearly prioritising integration of musical inclusivity.

And you can watch below! Please forgive the choppy editing …
