Kamea (Summer School)
We support music educators who work with children and young people, so they can empower them to compose and create their own music. We have a range of professional development opportunities, resources and advice for teachers and music leaders. We also signpost educators to other opportunities and resources created by other organisations that augment and complement our own work.
We also advocate that composing and creating music should be at the heart of every child’s music education. We support this work through national activity such as our #CanCompose campaign and we are working with partners to create a network of support for young composers and those who educate them.
A digital listening resource bringing primary school age pupils together to listen, explore and think. In a world that's more and more visually overwhelming, Minute of Listening helps pupils develop their creative listening skills.
#CanCompose outlines the findings of our National Music Educators’ Survey, the first of its kind in the UK. It reveals the significant barriers faced by young people looking to create their own music and makes recommendations on changes to remove these barriers.
This new partnership will work with primary school teachers and composers to develop meaningful, relevant composing activity for children and improve the quality of composing in primary schools.
