Working in conjunction with Soundwaves and Bill Roberts, Knowle West Children's Centre conducted a research project using music as a focus. KWCC is a researchful setting and before the project started we thought carefully about the process we might use and how we might measure the impact. We know that action research is a way of bringing about self reflection and this project was no different.

Soundwaves Extra is an innovative and exciting music network for Early Years practitioners, child-minders, Eary Years settings and schools.

Jam Buddies starts again on the 11th Jan - woohoo! Join us on Wednesday afternoon for musical fun where you can learn to play a musical instrument of your choice, learn to create songs and write lyrics, play as a band, as well as a multitude of other related musical activities and the chance to gain an Arts Award for your efforts.
Join us on the 11th in the recreation room behind the Kings Arms in Okehampton :)

I have recently begun a voluntary Music Trainee role with BPM (Bristol Plays Music) and I am working with a number of practitioners on ‘The Hope Creative’ project. The Hope Creative project supports children in care to explore and express their creativity through music and performance. By adopting a person-centred approach, the project provides the children with an opportuntiy to build self-confidence and identity through both individual and group work. Running alongside the monthly workshops is an Inclusive Practitioner training program that will enable me to develop my own skills and further understand the importance of an inclusive musical environment that nurtures and develops the creative potential in every child.

I am very humbled and excited to be given these opportunities and I will be recording and reflecting my experiences here, every month.
