Training Courses and Workshops

Making Music with Special Children

Our popular two-day courses are packed with practical music-making ideas for people working with children who have complex needs. We have a proven track record in designing hands-on, stimulating and enjoyable training for those working with children who have serious illness, disabilities or complex needs.

The course is equally suitable for people with no formal musical training and for those who have some experience: whatever level you’re at, you will go away with plenty of ideas to put into practice in your work.

‘All of it was fantastic – amazingly inspirational’

In order to make the course as accessible as possible, we heavily subsidise the cost. We’ve held the price for several years: you get both days for just £80 (and that even includes refreshments and lunches!).

Our next courses will be:
9th and 10th November, 2015, in York
12th and 13th November, 2015, in London
