Innovating the Wheel: Getting the most out of your early years music practice
This year’s London Early Years Music Network conference is asking how important innovation is in our practice. What does innovation look like? We know it is not about reinventing the wheel but about having the confidence to reflect, reassess, question and push ourselves. In a climate when we have to shout louder about how fundamental music making is for our young children we need to be confident that our practice is the best it can be.
This one day conference presents a broad programme including a keynote to challenge our thinking, case studies of new approaches, and practical sessions to reinvigorate our skills and passion.
- Tim Joss from ‘Arts Enterprise with a Social Purpose’ will present our keynote with a conversation exploring the difference between innovation and invention, social franchising and gangsta rap!
- Stuart Whatmore from Tri-Borough Music Education Hub sharing the process of collaborating to create an effective early years music offer for all.
- Professor Adam Ockleford will launch his the new Sounds of Intent in the Early Years framework.
- Carol Reid from Youth Music will facilitate a ‘Think-in’ about reflective practice and its benefits.
- Julian Knight will chair a panel discussion asking how we ensure legacy in our work
We are also pleased to offer Funder Surgeries:
Do you have a great idea for a music project? Are you thinking about or in the process of writing a Grants for the Arts application to Arts Council England or a Fund A or B application to Youth Music? Have you already submitted an application and been unsuccessful? ACE Relationship Manager Maria Turley and Youth Music’s Melissa Wong will be providing free 1-to-1 surgeries for organisations and individuals who want to find out more. Visit their websites for more information:
Book your surgery (either or both!) when booking your conference ticket. You will be given your surgery time-slot at registration on the day.
