We work in partnership with Primary Schools, Special Schools and Pupil Referral Units across the West Midlands and design bespoke packages that offer a child-centred, creative approach to making music.
Our musicians work with the school to identify children who might benefit from an inclusive and creative approach to music, and offer individual or small group sessions depending on the needs of the children.
We work towards developing the children's musical, social and personal skills including communication, self-efficacy, confidence, co-ordination, empathy, turn taking and self-esteem. Our practitioners are specialists at delivering inclusive music-making with children at risk of/with Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs.
Sessions often include improvisation, composition, leading a group, music technology, performing and recording their own music. We also provide opportunities for participants to visit MAC's Recording Studio and produce their own music using our professional equipment.
