Soundbeam 2 Equipment

South Riverside Music Partnership CPD Sessions

Soundabout uses music to unlock the potential of people with severe learning disabilities and autism. One of the ways we do this is through our programme of training.

The SRMP Sound Potential training project (led by Soundabout and Lewisham Music) will cover topics such as Soundabout Tools & Techniques, Working with Resonance Boards and the Sounds of Intent Framework.

All training will take place online, and you will receive a Microsoft Teams joining link once you have signed up.

The sessions are free for anyone working within the South Riverside Music Partnership (London boroughs of Southwark, Greenwich, Lambeth and Lewisham) and are £50 for people outside of those boroughs.
These sessions have been kindly funded by the Merchant Taylors.
