New year starts with inspiring training for Southampton Music Hub Staff

The autumn term, and the new school year, are off to an inspiring start for staff at Southampton Music Hub. With two days of training, the first was dedicated to looking at the year ahead, and a second was dedicated to different approaches to creating music, where staff were also joined by music teachers from Portsmouth Music Hub. The morning session was expertly led by Neil Valentine, a nationally recognised music leader, former Southampton Youth Orchestra member and Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra member. During the afternoon, Matt Brombley from Southampton and Isle of Wight Music Hubs shared approaches to composing music with technology based on the past year of the Music Tech project.

Nia Collins, Interim Hub Manager for Southampton Music Hub says:

"We have incredible team of staff who are both outstanding musicians and educators, and it's been a delight to spend the past two days with them, working alongside nationally recognised music leaders, to inspire our staff with new music experiences that they can now share with the children and young people in Southampton."
