Looking back on a successful first phase of the Northern Gamelan Network - encouraging musical inclusion and learning, through Indonesian Bronze Percussion!

A look into the challenges facing music practitioners working with young people from diverse ethnic backgrounds and the way in which we have made headway in overcoming some of the specific challenges we have encountered.

Last year Sloop Group were invited to be part of the COOLture Conversations project as part of Hull City of Culture. It was a wonderful oppourtunity for the group to work with a Gamelan that they had previously met on a trip to the National Centre for Early Music in York. As well as working with the enchanting instruments of the Gamelan, the group had two sessions with the poet Cassandra Parkin, to create a poem that would become the starting point for their own orginal composition using the Gamelan. The whole project culminated in a public peformance at Hull City Hall. You can find a copy of the poem the group created attached to this post.

This is something that made us 'feel happy'. Our young people aged 10-13 years old worked over a 5 week period on writing and producing a song to respresent their relationships with friends and the challenges they face. 

Barry is 13, has taken part in our Great Singing, Great Signing project for a year, and is still attending project sessions. Great Singing, Great Signing’s aim was to start and run two new singing and signing ensembles in areas of the region where there is currently no singing and signing activity; one in Halifax and one with the Doncaster Deaf Trust. Doncaster Deaf School (run by the Trust) is an educational organisation specifically for Deaf, hearing impaired and learning disabled young people, like Barry.

NYMAZ is excited to be launching a new bursary for Early Years Music Network members who wish to undertake the Level 4 Certificate for Music Educators (CME): Early Childhood. NYMAZ will be offering a very limited number of bursaries for candidates starting the course in September 2018 and September 2019 – only four bursaries will be available each year.

The CME: Early Childhood offers a flexible, part-time, distance-learning qualification in early childhood music, run by CREC and MERYC. The CME is a recognised National Qualification validated by Trinity College London.
