Are you looking for new ways of exploring instruments when working with pupils with SEND needs? Join Kent Music and Chiltern Music Therapy!

Playing instruments is fun and can help to support a range of physical and sensory needs. In this workshop you will explore how to make instrumental play accessible to pupils of all physical abilities as well as learning some structured sensory-motor activities.

This practical session will provide you with the confidence and knowledge to bring instruments into your music lessons when working with children with a variety of different SEND needs.

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.
