We have delivered training in partnership with over a dozen Music Education hubs (MEHs), and are delivery partners with three. We support MEHs to offer high-quality music-making opportunities to young people, and training and support to teachers. Particularly relevant is our work with SEN/D and other groups in challenging circumstances (PRUs, hospitals, young carers etc), as iPads allow access to composition, improvisation and performance for those who may not be able to engage with traditional instruments. We provide the following for MEHs:
As teachers ourselves, we understand the requirements of the busy classroom teacher, and our trainings are consistently rated as ‘excellent’. Our trainings are always supported by a complete set of text and video resources, equipment guides, and friendly email support. This also allows participants to pass on their training to colleagues.
“There are many ideas that I will take and use myself and adapt for my pupils. It was a wonderful opportunity to be part of their learning experiences, not only the musical content but the focus on the whole child as part of an ensemble. It was truly inspirational to be able to learn with this group and re-armed my belief that music should be accessible for everyone.”
SMEP Lower School Lead Teacher, Inspiring Music
“A number of students have said they will download the apps on their phones – to be wanting to make music at home, as a music teacher, I can’t ask for any more!”

“Informative, well presented, and provided me with plentiful ideas to take to the classroom for projects large and small.”
