Professional Development

This coming weekend MORE MUSIC is producing a 24 hour Music Party @ LMF2017 with the aim of raising funds for our Homeless Action music programme in Lancaster.
People taking part in the music sessions describe how singing, in particular, has lifted their spirits  "the only reason I walk the planet” and restored their self-belief  "singing has really helped my confidence”
 
They also say it makes a significant contribution to their recovery from addiction  " helps me deal with the bad stuff that happens” and has helped them refocus and rebuild their lives, securing and maintaining a home and returning to paid employment.

In Middleport, we wanted to take our issue of gang violence and create new opportunities for young people to be a part of a new gang...otherwise known as a band!  We believe that encouraging our young people to form music bands could change their pathway in life.

This Event is aimed at PRU staff and other educational professionals working with vulnerable young people including NEETs, SEND, Music Leaders, Policy Makers and Funders.

Professional development for school music leaders was offered through the Arts Award assessor training as well as more informal opportunities such as the initial planning session with the professional music leaders.

XLR GRADUATION!

A huge thanks to all those music educators and cultural partners across London and beyond for engaging in and contributing to Music Excellence London, the capital’s network supporting excellent musical teaching and learning at Key Stage 3 in London schools.

by Adam Cogdon, EBNE Music Leader. 

East By North East is a Youth Music funded project that brings together young people, and a staff team, from diverse backgrounds, celebrating different cultures and musical genres.  The music sessions allow us to explore different tastes and develop skills in music and to build confidence together.

Thank you to everyone who has been a part of our fantastic East by North East project so far. Without the hard work of all the young people, support workers, teachers, volunteers and music leaders who have taken part and supported this work, we wouldn't be able to shout about this amazing project!

First Notes is soundLINCS’ exciting music resource app for use in Early Years (EY) settings or by parents and carers at home – especially those without any previous experience of music. It’s packed full of exercises and activities designed to suit all ability levels to help with a child’s development in and outside of music.
