All young people with additional learning needs should have the opportunity to experience high-quality, pupil-centred instrumental and ensemble provision. Easy to say, but a significant challenge to achieve. This webinar shares practical and strategic ideas to support colleagues to make this a reality.
The session will cover:
- Designing one-to-one instrumental lessons in inclusive settings, including for neurodivergent and non-verbal pupils.
- Founding and sustaining inclusive ensembles in special schools
- Group composition in accessible ensembles
- Embedding workshop-style techniques in SEMH curriculum music.
The webinar is suitable for practitioners and hub Inclusion Leads and leadership teams.
- Jonathan Westrup (Open Up)
- Elle Williams (Ashby Music)
- Anna Wollof (Leicestershire Music)
- Marianne Barraclough (Sinfonia Viva)
