Leicester-Shire Music Education Hub partner, Bullfrog Arts, reaches out to under-represented groups

Engaging Young people with Special Educational needs in high quality music making

Bullfrog Arts have recently delivered a project which was set up to explore making music with young people with special educational needs. Two of our freelance musicians led weekly music sessions in a residential setting over a period of three months with the aim of learning and sharing good practice in this particular field of work. It was an incredible project which culminated in a musical Christmas celebration that saw all of the young people, the staff and artists of Bullfrog Arts unite and delight through the medium of music. The findings of this project has been prepared in a report which describes the nature of the project, the needs of the young people and a wealth of learning about delivering and engaging young people with special educational needs in music. If you'd be interested to find out more then please email Karen@bullfrogarts.com to request a copy of the final report.

Exploring Music Making with Key Stage 2 Gypsy and Travellers

Bullfrog Arts have recently delivered a project to explorer ways in which to engage young gypsy and traveller children in music making. The project involved artists attending specialist training over a period of time as well as building a strong partnership with key contacts in the gypsy and traveller community in order to maximise chances of engagement from the gypsy and traveller families. This culminated in a dozen young people coming together with our freelance musicians to prepare a musical fusion of taiko drumming with traditional folk twists. The ultimate performance at Curve Theatre was the result of a long journey of relationship building and hard work from all involved. If you'd be interested to find out more then please email Karen@bullfrogarts.com to request a copy of the final report.
