This engaging, practical resource sets out twelve original projects for making music inclusively with children and young people of all ages who have special abilities or needs, including those with profound and multiple learning difficulties, those on the autism spectrum, those who have a vision or hearing impairment, and those with social, emotional, and mental health needs.
‘East End Friend’ (Robert Quigley & Alan Cameron) have composed a song called ‘Good Cop Bad Cop’ which references the global conference in Glasgow and highlights issues of climate change which delegates from across the world are tasked in addressing. The song has been made freely available to all schools for young people to listen to and sing along to. Schools may wish to create new verses and a new bridge section while retaining the ‘Good Cop Bad Cop’ chorus, however students may make any new arrangement of the song that they choose.
