Rhythms of the World: CPD session

Albemarle Music Centre, Hull
Tuesday 7 June 2016

Following the highly successful Rhythms of the World project and as part of the Music4U programme, NCEM is hosting a training session to share good practice, exploring ways in which Deaf and hearing students can join together in meaningful music-making collaborations.

This training session, which takes place at the Albemarle Music Centre in Hull, is a closed CPD event for practitioners and teachers working locally with deaf young people, targeted through the Hull Music Hub and local schools.The session follows a practical project, which took place January-March 2016, involving young people from Sirius Academy IPaSS Unit (Integrated Physical and Sensory Service) joining together with GCSE Music students to develop a performance piece, using Indonesian bronze gamelan percussion and shadow puppetry.

Danny Lane (Music and the Deaf) and Donna Smith (Music4U) co-led the recent practical project and will come together again for this training session to share their approaches, learning and good practice. They will be joined by assistant music leader Emma Louise Dickinson (a recent graduate of the University of York Community Music MA). Together the project team will offer insights into the key successes of the project through: practical playing on the gamelan; discussion of approaches; video and audio examples; and a sharing of project feedback.

This is a closed training session but if you wish to express an interest in this event or find out more, please contact NCEM's Education Development Manager Emily Crossland on .

This project is generously supported by Youth Music and Hull City Council Arts Development, in partnership with Hull Music Hub and Music and the Deaf.
