The first Changing Tracks Task and Finish group on music services Diversifying Progression Routes ran on Tuesday 12th October. Delegates from Bristol, Camden, Leicestershire and Hertfordshire began by exploring the different ways progression can be defined:
by outcomes – musical, personal and social
by accreditation – grades, Arts Award, or curriculum examinations
by progression pathways – e.g formally organised performing activities, such as orchestras, windbands, choirs or informal self-organised groups or creative progression routes (from creating to performing music of different genres)
by location – in schools, music centres, youth and community centres, folk clubs, music studios, churches, hospitals, professional venues, festivals or people’s own homes
by role – performers (in all genres), composers/songwriters and music leaders, producers, dancers, engineers, promoters
by destination – conservatoires, FE/HE, music industry, community groups
into careers– performing, composition/songwriting, teaching/leadership, music therapy, backstage skills, production, journalism, academia
