On 1 November, Awards for Young Musicians (AYM) released their new CPD resource Practical Progression, a series of films created in partnership with the five Music Education Hubs currently delivering the Furthering Talent programme: Brighton & Hove, Greater Manchester, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and North West Midlands.
Brighton's film made in partnership with Brighton & Hove Music & Arts and SoundCity partners (found above) meets two individual musicians and one band and explores their own musical journeys and the decisions that have affected their careers. It looks at the benefits of providing children and young people with a diverse range of musical experiences and some of the many career options that are available to them on their own musical journeys.
The series of films form part of a peer-led professional development programme also called Practical Progression and aim to build on music leaders’ existing tool kit, whatever setting they are working in. The films look at different ways to support young people to overcome barriers to their music making and fall under the following themes:
Exploring Musical Journeys
Supporting Musical Communities
Encouraging Diverse Musical Experiences
Identifying Musical Potential
All films are free resources. To view all films and for more information download the AYM Practical Progress flyer.
