BREAKING THE BUBBLE: SEN/D MUSIC DEVELOPMENT DAY 2016 - Exploring musical progression for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
Wednesday 19th October 2016, 10am - 4pm at Rich Mix, London, E1 6LA
As part of the Breaking the Bubble programme (involving Soundcity – Brighton and Hove, Kent Music and Surrey Music Hub), we are producing a special event in October 2016 to investigate musical progression for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
The SEN/D MUSIC DEVELOPMENT DAY 2016 is a one-day event and takes place on Wednesday 19th October 2016, at Rich Mix in London. We invite schools, teachers, practitioners and managers involved with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities in schools, music ensembles or community settings, to come along.
The SEN/D MUSIC DEVELOPMENT DAY will provide a platform to discuss issues relating to musical progression for young people with SEN/D, and will stimulate and generate practical ideas and conversation, around issues of musical progression for young people with SEN/D. Young musicians and project managers from the South East and beyond will be performing and presenting at the event, and there will be a selection of practical, hands-on workshops to access throughout the day.
We are thrilled to announce that Dr Adam Ockelford will be delivering the keynote speech at the event. Adam Ockelford is a musician who has worked with children with special needs for the last 35 years in special and inclusive contexts. He has undertaken a wide range of research into the potential impact of autism, learning difficulties and sensory impairment on the development of musical interests and abilities. He has published a number of books on the subject, and lectures all over the world. He has led the ‘Sounds of Intent’ project - see www.soundsofintent.org - since its inception, 15 years ago.
