Enfield Special Schools Creative Music Project

Sound Connections is working with Enfield Music Service, lead partner of the Enfield Music Education Hub, to provide specialist music sessions in five special schools in autumn term 2017 and spring term 2018, leading to a final performance in the Millfield Theatre on Wednesday 7 March at 10.30am, which is free to attend and part of the Enfield Schools’ Music Festival 2018. Following a successful music project last year, which culminated in a performance involving all Enfield special schools, Enfield Music Service was keen to move forward creatively and offer special schools the opportunity to take part in a music project involving the creation of new music to be premiered in a final performance. Sound Connections associate artists (SEN/D music specialists) Graham Dowdall and Roshi Nasehi have been working collaboratively with these schools, leading music sessions with the children and young people and alongside teachers and school staff, bringing fresh ideas, skills and adding value to the musical activities already taking place in the schools. Feedback from schools has included:

This has been a great joint project which has brought all the special schools in Enfield together.”;

“All the children have thoroughly enjoyed these Music sessions and are eagerly waiting to perform on stage.”.
