Links from Luton Encounter Conference
Following some very interesting discussions in Luton on Friday i am posting these links to support all of us that are involved in teaching Brazilian carnival music and wider music Education.
We identified that music education will change drastically over the next few months. There has been a review of music education called the Henley Review and as a result there will be new county by county hubs informed by a new National Music Plan. The best way to stay informed of all of these changes is to register with www.musicleader.net . This is free and has resources such as funding info, jobs news and training opportunities.
For those interested in working as a MusicLeader (this includes leading Samba workshops/rehearsals) there is training available across England. Once registered with MusicLeader contact your area team and ask.
Finally, if we are to advocate the depth, breadth and quality of outcomes and outputs delivered via Brazilian carnival music, then we need to be able to prove it . The best evidence for this is a case study.
I would like to collect and publish some of the case studies demonstrating the best practice within this art form.
Case studies are around 400 words and tell inform others of the context,aims, delivery,outputs and outcomes of using this art form within education.
Please email email@example.com and we will send you a guide to writing a case study of 400 words. These can then be used to inform us of the areas of specialism in our practice and others of the value of our work. Obviously each case study would also make an interesting article on this site.
I have also supplied some useful other links in the new resources part of this site.
