All Together Now

A Plymouth-wide
music project for
students and staff
in SEN/D schools

Wren Music’s team works in partnership with staff in SEN/D schools, where students and staff take part together: song writing, playing instruments, singing together and making a band.

The project builds towards an informal performance for the school community, and leaves teachers with songs, tunes and techniques to carry on after the musicians leave. Wren Music bring real acoustic instruments and take a selective and targeted approach with technology. Everyone is able to take part in a way that they feel comfortable.

After a delayed start due to the pandemic the project is now completed and was able to very closely follow the original project aims and objectives.

Five schools took part: Brook Green Centre for Learning, Cann Bridge, Mill Ford, Courtlands, and Woodlands. Each school had 2 cohorts of pupils experiencing 5 workshops, and then a final performance to parents and friends, plus staff CPD and follow up sessions with pupils.

We had a bonus get-together of many of the children involved with a joint performance at Woodfest in July 2022, and we hope there will be more collaborative singing in 22/23.
