Session One: 10.00 – 11.15am: Inclusive Creative Song Writing

A session exploring the creative process of song writing with young tutors from Changing Tracks. This session will look at how to start writing songs and ways in which to develop ideas, including lyric writing, as well as some key considerations when working with a range of young people.


Session Two: 11.45 – 1.00pm – Basics of Hip Hop, Rap, and Grime

In a relaxed and conversational format, this session led by Kenny Baraka will provide a cursory – yet informative – overview of hip hop [rap, grime, trap and drill] and its musical conventions as well as a practical approach to formulating and writing bars; including key considerations and easy to use strategies.



Session Three: 2.00 – 3.15pm: Listen Imagine Compose: Composing for instrumental teachers

Led by Sound and Music and exploring their work as part of Listen, Imagine, Compose, this session will include multiple speakers from academics to instrumental teachers and will look at making composition less intimidating.

Young musicians are naturally open to experimenting and creating music as they develop and explore their instrumental skills. In this session, we will explore how instrumental teachers can help young players develop their all-round musicianship through composing and creating as part of their lessons. There will be practical ideas for activities in 1-2-1 lessons and whole class ensemble teaching to try out during the session, and some food for thought from Martin Fautley.


Session Four: 3.45 – 4.30pm: TBMH Tutor Staff Meeting held on Zoom. Time to catch up with colleagues and the core hub team. Time to learn about key updates and ask questions about the term ahead.
