More Music

I am at the end of third day of the Walking the Boundaries, Bridging the Gap Community Music conference here in Waterloo, Ontario. 140 people sharing research, case studies, playing and listening in the context of the only CM masters and undergrad courses in Canada. 

Have a listen to a great song written as part of a recent cold spot project at More Music in Morecambe, working with the young people from the A.C.E (Achieve, Change and Engagement). 

In January 2016 I was tasked with embedding arts award delivery across the whole of our youth music programme. The ultimate aim, that every young person we work with would have the opportunity to achieve an arts award. The challenge; actually putting this into practice and changing the way that we planned and delivered our sessions and projects so that the arts award was at the forefront of the initial planning process

It’s one thing to be able to arrive somewhere and deliver a music project with your own staff, the next step is to be able to create a sustainable project that can continue to exist after your organisation’s involvement has ended. 

This recent project allowed More Music to achieve our 2 key objectives for cold spot projects : Skill development opportunities for new music leaders and progression for participants.

A highlight of July’s International Society for Music Education (ISME) conference in Glasgow was a well-received performance by the Lancashire Youth Vocal Ensemble (LYVE), a project supported by Youth Music. LYVE included their own unique spin on the Habanera from Bizet’s Carmen, part of the repertoire from the BBC’s Ten Pieces creative classical music programme. We recently spoke to Emma Williams, singing leader at LYVE Lancaster, to find out more about the project.

I have been travelling to the biannual conference of the International Society of Music Education - https://www.isme.org/ - for 6 years now and have come to see them as an opportunity to learn from the international education community and also focus my own learning and share it with peers and colleagues. For the 2016 event in Glasgow it seemed obvious to bring my involvement in the development of Music Education Hubs to a wider audience.
