Drake Music‘s music education festival, We All Make Music, takes place on 9 March 2018.
Aiming to tackle inclusion head on, the event is for teachers, music hub teams, arts organisations, funders, music leaders and practitioners.
The programme includes workshops led by disabled and non-disabled musicians on music tech topics such as Garage Band and ThumbJam, Sampling and Composition and TouchBoards, Makey Makey’s and Mogees. Attendees can also expect sessions on new classroom approaches, including R&D in the classroom, accredited accessible courses and challenging traditional peri methods.
With a focus on taking action, the day will allow people to advance their knowledge of inclusion and to examine and imagine the future of music education.
Carien Meijer, Chief Executive of Drake Music, said:
‘The inclusive music education scene right now is an exciting place to be. We are delighted to be part of it and to host this challenging, thought-provoking and fun day of hands-on music ed practice, debates and action. The time is right for inclusive practice to take centre stage with more opportunities being created for disabled music leaders and clear pathways for musical progression for young disabled musicians. We’re looking forward to welcoming people from the music ed sector right across the UK to look at how we can all drive forward change together… and there will be a few exciting surprises for people on the day too!’
We All Make Music runs from 10am-5.30pm on 9 March 2018 at Amnesty International UK, 25 New Inn Yard, London EC2A 3EA. For more information, please click here.
