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.
