"I'm interested in challenging expectations of what music education can and should be. We are constantly being told that our young people need to be 'creative' and 'innovative' but music education, a field that should be an example to other disciplines, is often lacking in these two vital areas. Putting an emphasis on 'making something' versus subjective ideas about what may be correct or incorrect practice leads to musicians and participants to rediscover a sense of fun in music while at the same time engaging in progressive concepts of music-making.

Having spent the last 10 years developing these skills, my current focus is on expanding participation in my projects to include people with no previous experience in performing. I want to show that inclusivity and high musical quality are not mutually exclusive and that creativity requires no superpowers. The only pre-requisites are an open mind and the courage to join in".

Music teacher Jimmy Rotherham started at Faversham Primary four years ago, just as the school was coming out of special measures. The new head teacher, Naveed Idrees, was convinced that a radical programme of between two and six hours of music would help reverse the school's fortunes.

"The programme had a profound effect on our results" Jimmy says.

Faversham is now in the top two percent of schools in the country for pupil progress and Jimmy is now in demand to share his experience worldwide.
