This is our new rap-metal track, Going Off On One! We ran a Youth-Music funded workshop for young people who have learning disabilities on April 19th 2017, and this is the film created from the day. Participants had fun learning the Deftones inspired guitar riffs, playing the drum in military style, rehearsing screamo, discussing what made them angry, working on their own lyrics and flow - and of course as you will see from the video there was lots and lots of dancing! 

Reflection is increasingly a hot topic amongst music-educators across the country, and it is an essential skill for using Youth Music's Quality Framework - but where does the concept of reflection come from, and how to does it work?

Amber is delighted to be working with 'Music in Devon Initiative' - MIDI to deliver this project. The knowledge, skill, expertise and creativity that they bring will help us to develop a really rich, diverse, resident led programme.  

We are gearing up to the launch of our project by gaining feedback from residents. We want to make sure that we get the content and structure of our programme right and the best place to start is with the participants!

This booklet has been useful for staff working on Plugged In projects as a resource for raising standards of teaching and learning.  

Plymouth Music Zone's 'Peer Pick' training was developed in response to our music leaders requesting tailored training and support, without this necessarily being something needed by our whole team. It's been a kind of mentoring with specific aims, and for the most part proved a useful way of quickly getting to the nub or what they needed to know and develop. It was a cost-efficient way of providing training where it was needed. It has also highlighted the usefulness of music leaders having a chance to acknowledge their own unique skills through the process of sharing, and very much a chance to reflect on their practice...
