Training & Consultancy

We provide consultancy, advice and training for schools, music hubs and arts organisations in breaking down disabling barriers to music.

We offer professional development opportunities for practitioners providing music services for disabled people, with a particular focus on using technology to improve access to music making.

It can be difficult to keep up to date with the latest technology, or changing ideas in best practice, so we offer high quality training courses to solve that problem.

Opportunities are limited for disabled adults, children and young people to participate in creative music-making activities. We support the education, arts and third sectors to develop their skills and knowledge in this area, to improve access to music for all.
