This year’s conference theme is Supporting Progression for All, which fits neatly with our Think2020 aims and our message that “Inclusion is not a choice”.

We are working to strengthen inclusion in the music education sector, whether that’s by developing progression routes for young disabled musicians, or advocating for a more diverse workforce.

We are delighted to be involved with the Music Mark conference, it looks like a jam-packed and fascinating two days!

Think2020 Session Info

    • Date: Friday, 11 November 2016 
    • Time: 3.30pm
    • Type: Breakout session
    • Speaker: Jonathan Westrup, our Education Manager and key member of the Think2020 team.
    • Topic: How to nurture leadership for music education hubs and disabled young musicians
    • Details: Are music leaders in special education settings simply ‘naturals’ or can the skillset be taught? This session will consider the strategic approaches taken by music hubs in this area and attempt to define and demystify the desired qualities of those tasked with leading it.

Join us at Music Mark to share your views on this interesting topic.

How can we make it clearer what a great music leader looks like and – in doing so – make it easier for a wider range of people to join the profession?
