I am working with the Performing Arts teacher of Perry Beeches School to give some of the year 8 and 9 students an opportunity to experience the joys of music. Some of the groups I am working with seem disengaged with education and for most teachers behavioural issues occur frequently. Quite a few participants were on report or were given detentions.

It is definitely going to be a challenge to make these students become creative and motivated about music. At present it is difficult to move from behaviourist or teacher led activities let alone to more cognitive exercises. I will persevere!!

I will have to have to engage with the ring leaders to a certain degree to get the pace of workshops faster.
