Tributes are being paid to Anice Paterson, the former chair of NAME who passed away on Monday, 29 September.
Paterson was an author and research fellow at Bath Spa University College and put together a number of booklets including Composing in the Classroom: The Creative Dream in 2000. It presented research findings to support the development of effective methodologies for the teaching of composing in schools.
Former NAME chair Leonora Davies wrote: "It is with sadness that we announce the death of Anice Paterson who died on Monday September 29th. She was chair of NAME from 1999-2000 and before that an active member of MANA (Music Advisers National Association).
"From 2001 to 2006 she was Publications Officer and was the inspiration behind NAME's extensive range of publications: a lasting, significant and relevant legacy for all music educators today. Her views on Music Education as ever relevant today, are those we can all share, use and implement . Never afraid of challenge and change she always made her views robustly but fairly. Her expertise, enthusiasm and vibrant personality will be sorely missed."
