SEND Instrumental Learning & Singing
Music is one of the most inclusive and participatory subjects for all children. Tailored to the needs of your learners, our SEND school projects use music as a vehicle for developing creativity, helping each individual to shine. Through these projects, LSMS aims to build sustainable partnerships with SEND schools that can support both your teachers and students, responding to needs and interests over the long-term.
If you have pupils with additional needs in your mainstream school, we can adapt our instrumental and vocal projects to ensure the lessons are fully inclusive. When you make your booking, there is a section where you can tell us about pupils' specific needs so that we can plan accordingly.
Please contact Alison.Mitchell@leics.gov.uk to discuss your booking requirements.
iPad Project for SLD students
Tailored to the needs of your pupils, this 5 session project uses iPads to develop musical skill, knowledge and creativity, particularly allowing SLD and MLD student's access to creating music. A comprehensive resource pack is also included in the package.
Sessions will be delivered by a specialist, and activities could include:
• Composition and song writing
• Creating music videos
• Mixing iPads with acoustic instruments
• Creating iPad ensembles
Introduce students to different sound fields and develop improvisation, composition and arranging skills. Soundbeam is also great in PMLD settings, enabling music making with autonomy for students with limited movements.
"The sound beam has been a valuable resource in enabling students of all ages and abilities to access a vibrant and varied curriculum, not just within music, without barriers to their learning."
Mark Wilson, teacher at Dorothy Goodman
These small group sessions for up to 10 students can be tailored around a class topic or theme. They will be tailored to meet your objectives and can be a standalone workshop or part of a series. The cost includes bespoke project planning, delivery of 2 x sessions of 1 hour duration (up to 20 pupils) and the provision of instruments.
1-2-1 instrumental tuition for a minimum of 1 hour. We recommend that each pupil receives at least a 20 minute individual lesson. Schools may decide to fund this completely, or recharge some or all of the cost on to parents. Please contact us to discuss further.
LSMS know that all learners have individual needs. We're committed to making music available to every child, and would be very happy to create a bespoke project for your school.
Please email LSMSteaching@leics.gov.uk and one of our team will get back to you to discuss the possibilities.
SEND Singing Experience
Take part in a singing morning with pupils from other schools. Lots of fun, lots of songs and lots of ideas to take back to school.
"Words cannot really describe this event- magical, joyous, uplifting all come to mind, and the standing ovation the children received, sums up more than words, the feelings of the parents and carers who were there."
Nigel Brewster, audience member
