Moving On the Thinking: Inclusive Music Practice

A series of 6 standalone sessions delivered by inclusion specialist Dr Phil Mullen. Building on Phil's expertise delivering SEMHD training, inlcusion strategies, and his recent publication 'Challenging Voices', these sessions will delve deeper into areas of inclusive music practice that we thought we knew.

These sessions are designed for those who wish to further their understanding and experience in this area. If you are new to the field we would recommend doing Phil's introductory two-day session, 'Introduction to Inclusive Music Practice'.

More information will be released in the coming weeks, but for now, here are the dates for your diary.
