i am here!! (2012-14): an early years project that used music to support the acquisition of strong speech and language skills in young children. The team of music leaders worked with a speech and language consultant to develop the songs and linguistics activities that were used in workshops for nursery age children. Training and a resource package in audio, print and online were used to support the long-term sustainability and use of the programme in nursery settings by nursery staff.
The World Music Academy: Inspire: The project provided training for young musicians aged 15 to 24 from culturally diverse and disadvantaged communities to support their progression towards a career in the music industry.
