Make Some Noise are proud to be highlighted as an example of good practice in a recent House of Lords debate on music education for children with special needs and disabilities.

Information gathered by the Arts Council was used in the debate. “There are some excellent examples of hubs working with children who have disabilities. The Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent hub’s strategic partner, Make Some Noise, runs training and mentoring programmes for musicians and teachers wishing to improve their skill set and confidence in delivering music activities for children with SEN and disabilities, through the use of assisted music technology specialists and equipment.”

Make Some Noise’s role in several of the music education hubs illustrates and informs how community music partners can play a strategic and delivery role to complement the work of music services. Find out more about our work within the local music education hubs here.
