Whether you are a musical novice or an experienced musician, writing music is a great way to nurture creativity and self-expression. In this workshop you will be guided through different strategies for facilitating composition and song writing activities for pupils with SEND needs, with time spent thinking about lyrics, structure and using music technology.

This session is most suitable for teachers and support staff from special schools, however, you may find this useful if you work in a mainstream school where you also work with children with SEND needs.
