The session was focused on working with young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities and was led by CoMusica Programme Leader Matt Sokell and co delivered with Community Music Sparks member Mark Andrews.
A group of diverse music practitioners attended the session and were led by Matt and Mark through an initial discussion on the context of each person’s practice followed by a series ofSEN/D focused ice breakers, games and activities. The session was closed with a question and answer session with ideas for musical engagement being shared amongst the group.
