Evidence that music changes schools and has a major impact on education and wellbeing. Any doubts? Our guests will convince you otherwise…
Our webinar taking place on Thursday 18 October at 3.30pm is aimed at primary and secondary school music teachers, heads of department, head teachers, peripatetic teachers and music leaders, and parents and carers.
We will cover:
The webinar will be hosted by our Music Education Hubs Associate, Ruth Jones. She will be joined by:
Jimmy Rotheram, musician and Music Coordinator at Feversham Primary Academy and Anita Holford who is a freelance writer and communications practitioner, specialising in helping music and arts organisations to communicate the value and impact of what they do.
Jimmy Rotheram has seen first-hand how using inclusive, child-developmental approaches to music education can transform schools. After introducing up to 6 hours of music a week for every child, Feversham went from Special Measures to one of the top 10% of schools in the country for pupil progress. This led to a feature in the Guardian which attracted over 250,000 global shares.
Anita Holford runs the musiceducationworks website and is also part of the senior management team for a small community music charity The Music Works, which specialises in working with young people in challenging circumstances. Her areas of special interest are inclusion/social justice, looked-after children, music and mental health, and impact evaluation.
There will be allocated time for questions and issues raised during the webinar.
If you can't attend live, register as normal and we'll send a link to the webinar after the event.
