For the last 17 years Soundabout has delivered training packages to professionals in special needs schools, colleges, children's centres, residential homes and to other organisations that work with people with learning disabilities, throughout the UK. For example, in 2014 we delivered over 170 training days to 70 different schools and organisations in England, Scotland and Wales. We use interactive musical and communication techniques with their pupils / students / group members: however, our techniques are about far more than just ‘making music’. They promote self-expression and interaction, encourage well-being and build relationships (to read more about our approach, click on: 'our methods').
In addition to this, Soundabout’s doors are open to all children, young people and adults who have severe and complex learning difficulties via our families and community programme. We currently run family community sessions for children, young people and adults in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and surrounding counties. We also run several multi-sensory interactive music festivals throughout the year. Through making music we help them develop their ability to communicate and interact with each other and the world around them – and have a lot of fun along the way (to read more, click on: 'families & community').
Soundabout are looking for two music practitioners to undertake a 3-month paid internship (April-July 15)
Soundabout are also now recruiting the 2015/2016 cohort of students for the PGCert in Music and SEND
