This is a fantastic example of a local community taking the void in music education into their own hands!
Music@Malling is a super outreach programme, which takes musicians into local schools to embed music into the curriculum and to bring different schools together through the shared experience of music.
This film focuses on a project based around John Adam’s ‘Shakerloops’. Groups from 5 local schools each wrote a unique piece inspired by the work, then came together to perform them all in a fantastic concert in a local church, accompanied by a professional orchestra.
Also, listen out for some important comments about why curriculum based music education during the school day is so important for young people. You can even hear how much the Children enjoy being a part of this inspiring project…
