The Equal Access to Music Programme  comprises a set of Projects . The Programme has emerged from our experience of taking a Social Model Approach to make equal access to music a reality for Young People with ' autism' or 'learning disability' labels .  We'd welcome discussion about the development of ' Inclusive Music Facilitators'

Community music and music education were at the centre of the conversation at the TEDx event in Lincoln late last year, as soundLINCS’ CEO Nikki-Kate Heyes MBE gave a fantastic speech on the topic “Community Music: A Power for Change”.

Conductors for Change gives music leaders the tools, strategies and practical conducting techniques to set up a new instrumental ensemble, or develop an existing one. Created by a team of highly experienced music directors and educators this flexible programme of hands-on training days is rooted in inclusive practice.

The launch of the National Open Youth Orchestra (NOYO), the first ever national disabled-led youth orchestra, is a significant moment in music education history.
