This post is about Northamptonshire Music Education Hub’s "Inclusive Ensemble" initiative - part of our Fund B “Music Forge” programme – developed in partnership with Friar's Academy (SEN/D school, secondary level) in Wellingborough. It describes how our relationship with the school and the young people has developed over time, and draws some conclusions about what’s made the project work so successfully for all involved over the longer term.

Leicester music projects - Urban influences

Working on the Concept days mixed old skills with new, the young people all seemed enthusiastic and keen to learn, their experience ranging from those with developing passions for music, though those wanting to build on school music classes, to some who had little experience at all.

In January of this year I was given the chance to work as an intern for pedestrian. This wasn’t the first internship I had undertaken in an educational facility but it was the first time I would be working with the students and not behind the scenes as a technician.

Its been a busy and exciting time for the Concept Music Project team and the young musicians and producers who have been taking part. With two of our 'Pop Up Studio' residencies completed and drop in sessions happening regularly in Corby and Leicester, we are looking forward to music making with more young creatives and pleased to be collaborating with a range of project partners throughout 2017 and into 2018. This is an initial reflection on our first residency at the Core in February.

This is story of one of our most successful SEND initiatives to date and how through careful reflection between the team and with parents/carers we have found a winning formula.

We’re delighted to release the final report of findings from Pedestrian’s Little Music Stars, a project aiming to test digital music making technology in Early Years music practice. Pedestrian’s Little Music Stars was delivered between September 2014 and June 2016 and sought to work with 0-5 year olds and their parents through digital music making technology.

As part of her internship, soundLINCS’ Programme Facilitator Intern Orinta has been involved with research and delivery for several projects, including soundWELL. This is her experience throughout the first phase of the project. 

On the 22/2/16 session the young people started to learn and gather information about their creative hero so, they could design a poster of information about thier hero.
