The Tri-borough Music Hub is here to work with all schools through our existing resources, support programmes, and our strong networks of partners. We stand firmly with all schools and school leaders as they manage a unique and challenging situation brought about by Covid-19. The TBMH is a music-specific service focused on high-quality outcomes inclusive of all learners. It recognises the numerous benefits that music can bring to everyone from all backgrounds and in all circumstances.
Now, more so than ever, we believe that all pupils should be actively encouraged to engage in a curriculum offer which is rich in musical, creative and artistic learning, enabling opportunities for students to explore and express their emotions in non-verbal settings. It is this creative engagement which will support pupils as and when they return to school. We believe inclusive music education helps to build stronger, healthier communities. A balanced curriculum will allow learners of all styles to develop a rounded skill-set including critical thinking, innovation, and problem-solving.
“Music is the tool to express life – and all that makes a difference.” - Herbie Hancock
“How is it that music can, without words, evoke our laughter, our fears, our highest aspirations?” - Jane Swan
“Music brings a warm glow to my vision, thawing mind and muscle from their endless wintering.” - Haruki Murakami
The Tri-borough Music Hub has written a simple framework to help children recover from the consequences of Covid-19 and the emotional impact of societal changes which have occurred over the past few months. Teachers/schools can use this framework to help shape a curriculum that will support pupils re-engage with their learning when face-to-face teaching resumes. Click on the image below to download it. (NB: All music activities should follow Government and PHE Guidance in response to Covid-19 safe practice guidelines).
With thanks to the Specialist Music Teachers in RBKC, LBHF, WCC across Primary, Secondary and SEND Phases for their support in shaping this document with the Tri-borough Music Hub.
This page contains the document for FREE download to be used by anyone - if it can help support pupils re-engage with learning through music education, then we will be delighted. We will also update this page with links to useful resources that teachers can access.
