These posts are from a set of case studies called ‘Working Together to Move the Needle on Inclusion in Five West Midlands Music Education Hubs’, produced by Anita Holford.
Anita met with some of the team at Severn Arts in Worcestershire to find out about their individual inclusion journeys. Here are the stories of Debbie Fawcett, Director of Learning, and Gareth Hughes, Drum Tutor and Inclusion Lead.
