North East Connections

We’re delighted to announce a new partnership with Aberdeen City/Aberdeenshire local authorities and Aberdeen & Aberdeenshire Strategic Music Partnership funded by Creative Scotland’s Youth Music Initiative which will increase access to music education for young people with special needs in the North East of Scotland.

Beginning in January 2012, Connections will deliver a range of creative music projects in special schools which will directly benefit 72 children and young people with Additional Support Needs as well as train three North East based musicians in the range of technologies we currently use such as Soundbeam, Skoog, as well as Figurenotes.

“We’re very excited to be extending our reach to the North East” says Chief Executive Thursa Sanderson “Connections will create a pool of locally based, highly trained and skilled musicians to lead future inclusive music projects.”
