An introduction to music making with children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities.
A day of practical training exploring a range of techniques for creative music making in both group and 1:1 settings. Taking a child centred approach participants will explore and practise a range of toolkit techniques essential for engaging cyp with SEND in creative music making, including:
* Using your own instrument responsively to develop engaging opportunities for non- verbal communication and interaction linking to the Sounds of Intent framework.
* Non-verbal music making linked to the principles of intensive interaction, including use of voice and body in 1:1 music making
* Techniques for using percussion effectively and creatively in a sensory setting
* Leadership skills used in delivering creative activities with groups of staff and cyp with SEND
* Developing compositional ideas effectively in a group setting
Relevent to educational and residential SEND settings the practical approach to the day will give particiants the opportunity to try out, develop and share new practical skills, gaining confidence to work creatively with staff and children and young people.
