Musical Inclusion

Working closely with our partners, we will continue to build our offer to young people and develop a programme which embraces a wide range of genres and styles and enables participants  to achieve social and personal outcomes as well as musical goals.

What is musical inclusion?

‘Musical Inclusion is about removing barriers to ensure all children enjoy full participation in a music education that supports the development and achievement of each young person based on their individual abilities, needs and interests’.

(Dr Phil Mullen:  An Inclusive Music Strategy for North Tyneside Music Education Hub: 2021-2025)

What does inclusion involve?

“Inclusion involves change. It is an unending process of increasing learning and participation for all students. It is an ideal to which Hubs can aspire but which is never fully reached. But inclusion happens as soon as the process of increasing participation is started. An inclusive Hub is one that is on the move.”

(Adapted from Booth and Ainscow, 2002: 3)

North Tyneside Music Education Hub Inclusion Strategy

In conjunction with Dr Phil Mullen and Youth Music, NTMEH have identified several strategic priorities for 2021-2025 to strengthen our musically inclusive offer. An Inclusive Music Strategy for North Tyneside Music Education Hub: 2021-2025 sets the foundations to build a music education culture where all children and young people are valued and recognised for their unique qualities, ideas, voices and perspectives, and where they can see the hub as providing a range of diverse and suitable musical opportunities and progression pathways.

Working closely with our partners, we will continue to build our offer to young people and develop a programme which embraces a wide range of genres and styles and enables participants  to achieve social and personal outcomes as well as musical goals. We will also continue to develop a more diverse music education workforce who can work with young people of all backgrounds, needs and interests.
