Join the More Music team for a compelling introduction to community music.
10am – 3pm
More Music has been at the forefront of community music practice for 30 years, delivering inspiring and inclusive music projects across Lancashire and with partners nationally. This training day is an opportunity to learn more about community music and inclusive musicmaking from experienced music leaders, the wide-ranging holistic impacts it can have for participants and gain new skills to apply in your own practice.
Inclusion is a strategic priority in the new National Plan for Music Education, creating accessible and supportive ways for young people of all abilities to connect with musicmaking both in and out school. A community music approach is also an ideal way of working with adult participants and bringing people together in shared creative activities, with benefits for mental health, community and confidence, a key part of the Arts Council’s Let’s Create strategy.
By the end of this event, you have an understanding of the theory behind community music practice and why it is important. You’ll also learn practical workshop skills and techniques which you can apply in your own work.
This event is aimed at:
– music teachers and freelance music educators interested in learning inclusive approaches
– musicians and music graduates wanting to broaden their skills
– youth and community workers who want to use music in their work
There will be an opportunity to network and meet other like-minded people. Refreshments will be provided. Please bring your own lunch, there are also shops and food options within walking distance.
