What is Reflective Practice?

It is a way in which we can work, look back on and learn from the work that we do. It helps to build self awareness and develop a better understanding of others. It is a way to continuingly learn and develop skills. It is a continuing cycle that feeds from one point to the next.

I have often come across the struggle transitioning/adapting participants of small vocal/music workshops to larger ones...........All added ideas are welcome! 

A look at how these workshops running for Young, Vulnerable Musicians are coming along relating to Quality Framework.

A brief creative session report for North and South Bristol May 2016

Thoughts on scaffolding and supporting the music made by young people, and questions relating to the Youth Music Quality Framework.

Bristol Plays Music (BPM) is Bristol’s hub for music education. BPM believes in the power of music – to inspire, teach and transform lives. We want to make sure that every young person has access to music education activities and a platform for musical expression.

Through work with partners and venues across Bristol, BPM will join up opportunities for teaching, learning and performance in a way that everyone can access. Our goal is to promote local music-making and our city’s rich musical talent.

One of our recent projects...

If you’ve got 5 minutes (well actually about 2mins 56 seconds) settle yourself down, grab yourself a cuppa and watch the film of ‘The Hunt’ the project that Bristol Plays Music ran with a group of young musicians, renowned animateur Eugene Skeef and members from the Kinshasa Symphony Orchestra.

The story of the Kinshasa Symphony Orchestra (OSK) and their choir from the DRC is miraculous and uplifting.

Colston Hall joined with the Halle Orchestra and the Southbank Centre to organise a tour of Kinshasa Symphony Orchestra to Manchester, London and Bristol. As part of this landmark event, the Bristol Plays Music team began work on a unique programme of creative learning for some of Bristol’s most talented young musicians. At the beginning of September, the group, working intensively with internationally renowned South African composer and animateur Eugene Skeef produced a suite of music and song entitled ‘The Hunt’.

The musicians came from across Bristol’s communities, and from many musical backgrounds – Classical, Rock, Urban and Contemporary – to learn about Congolese music and culture, and explore friendship, love, conflict and mythology through the concepts of hunter and hunted.

It was an incredible journey for the participants and leaders alike, so enjoy the film and let us know what you thought.
