We know that as the needs of children and young people change, so too do the needs of those working with them – whether as teachers, workshop leaders, managers, producers, coaches or mentors.

Sound Connections’ 2021-22 programme focuses on:

  • Youth voice and participation
  • Music and social justice
  • Equality, equity, diversity and inclusion
  • Music in the early years

Brenda Rattray is our guest curator for the 2021-2022 training and development events, and Inclusive Practice in Action. Vanessa Stansall is our guest curator for the London Early Years Music Network. You can read more about their work here [link to]

All of our events are subsidised with support from The National Foundation for Youth Music and the Rachel Baker Charitable Trust.
