'Tear down these walls' : overcoming barriers across music education
Suitable for Key Stages 1 – 5
Alison is leading 2 workshops - Key Stage 1 & 2 specific & Key Stage 3-5 specific
We often hear the aspiration that 'music education is for everyone'. It is a great aspiration to hold and something we should strive towards, but sadly the reality of the situation is that there are many children, for a variety of reasons, who do not and currently cannot fully access the array of music education opportunities on offer in and out of school. Through exploring a range of barriers to music education, this session will consider the practical steps we can all implement in order to help more children to overcome these barriers and access the high quality music education every child richly deserves.
