I am a musician who runs workshops based around inclusion through music. I have worked with a number of different pupils with a number of different needs, and tailoring workshops around those needs. The main aim of the workshops is for pupils to have fun with music, learn musical basics, but also to create an environment where pupils can express themselves in a way that they maybe haven't done before. 

As well as 'real', physical instruments, I do a lot of work with ipads - using certain apps to make music much more accessible and pupils can make music straight away! The workshops promote individual learning as well as group work and have very interesting and proven results, especially in an SEN or EBD setting.

I also deliver training for school staff on ipads and how they can integrate basic music apps into their daily teaching. For example, using chord progression on a software instrument to teach basic maths. 

I am also a professional touring musician.
