SEND Instrumental Learning & Singing

"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

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, we aim 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 LMSEND@leics.gov.uk to discuss your booking requirements.

Soundbeam Hire

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

Schools are using the units to introduce students to different sound fields, to develop their topic work, and as a resource across the whole school. Within SLD and MLD settings, It develops improvisation, composition and arranging skills when working in a group, and within PMLD settings, it is an excellent resource to enable music making for students with limited movements and allows students autonomy where some conventional instruments cannot.

Work at Dorothy Goodman has proved successful, with the unit being used across the school '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.
