Music Treehouse has come to the end of its first year at the HMDT Music Saturday Programme (SP). Supported by Youth Music and using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, Music Treehouse is a much needed SEN/D extension of our Saturday Programme which offers students a range of conditions the opportunity to participate in the programme, enabling us to broaden our inclusion to students who are often isolated and overlooked outside of the school environment. A sense of community and working together to create music is integral to the SP, which is hugely sociable for both parents and students and Music Treehouse (MT) students have now joined the community.
