AmyWe were deeply saddened last week to learn of the death of a bright young community musician, Amy Moar. Amy was involved with Hear My Music as a trainee from the very first project that we ran as an organisation. I met Amy when she was a senior pupil at the City of Edinburgh Music School where she expressed an interest in community music.

Djembe drumWe have been delivering some group music sessions for Time to Connect. These group music sessions are joyful and energetic, involving singing, playing, dancing, all executed with maximum enthusiasm!

In the summer term 2015, we ran an after-school music group with Crosshouse school supported classes. Pupils from Crosshouse school took part in a mixture of one-to-one and group sessions.

  •  Learning instruments
  • Creating group compositions
  • Singing
  • Listening

We had the privilege of working with Adam Ockelford in South Lanarkshire schools in March. Adam was working with the pupils and staff in these schools to introduce the Sounds of Intent framework.

It was a wonderful two days. All the children astounded us with their abilities and fantastic music was heard ringing round the schools.
