Improvisation, live performance and freedom

I was privileged to witness 2 amazing pieces of live performance last night at a celebration evening of Complementary and Supplementary schools at County Hall, Hertford. The Hertfordshire Music Service is currently running 'Songwriter 2012', a project  to support young people's emotional learning, which has been match-funded by the BME achievement team who coordinate the C and S schools, and who invited us to contribute some live music as part of the evening.

Mental health CPD leadership meeting, 9th December 2011

Really interesting start to the LSIS project on Friday. Great to meet some very committed people from other areas, and especially to hear about their innovative practice. Particularly looking forward to checking out 'Back on Track'.

A couple of things from the session resonated. Firstly, the importance of organisations 'walking the talk' on supporting staff well-being the way we hope to support learners'. How else is transmission of confidence and relaxed learning possible, especially in making music?

Monday morning...

So it's Monday morning (well it was when I started this) and I didn't get half as much done over the weekend as I'd hoped - why is that such a familiar feeling. Anyway, filled with the anticipation of a new week in which to further develop our e-community and its associated website I am having a go at this our first blog entry (until I post it I have no idea where it will go or what it will look like - so fingers crossed it does what I think it will and if not there may be some very public egg on my face!).
