Inclusive Music Practice

Wiltshire Music Connect aims to promote and provide and share useful, effective and ethical resources to support inclusive practice and musical learning and participation opportunities for all children and young people in Wiltshire.

We support the social model of disability which defines disability as arising from the interaction between someone with an impairment and the barriers that exist in the environment: the attitudes of others and the policies, practices and procedures of organisations.

Our Associates and school teachers want to include all children and young people in music making and progression and we are committed to providing CPD and other resources which support inclusive practice.

Teachers, parents, carers and young people themselves also recognise that music contributes to their wellbeing, which was reflected in our children and young people consultation Take Note
