We are delighted to announce the publication of the TiME – Arcana Strum Case Study.
Conducted in partnership with the Northampton Music and Performing Arts Trust and inclusive music leader Rebecca Price, this in-depth case study investigates how the Arcana Strum can enhance access to music making and facilitate progressive and accredited learning for young people with additional needs and disabilities. Along with the case study you will find a ‘Getting Started – Tips’ document plus some handy guides on using the Strum from Arcana Instruments.
The provision of accessible and adaptive music technology plays a key role in enhancing inclusivity and expanding opportunities in music-making and musical skills development. Through accessible instruments, such as the Arcana Strum, children and young people who might otherwise face barriers can actively engage in music. The Arcana Strum offers an adaptable and personalised learning experience that provides a pathway to develop and progress as a musician.
This aligns perfectly with the new English National Plan for Music Education (NMPME), which emphasises the importance of providing high-quality music education accessible to all students, regardless of their backgrounds or abilities. Integrating music technology into the NPME ensures that music education is more accessible for learners of all abilities.
