Outside of college I'm involved in a charity called 'Hear My Music' which aims to bring music to people of different abilities. Both last week and today I've been helping my employer, Emily Carr, with a project linking a special needs school, a primary school and an additional support unit in a High School together in Glenrothes. There are some challenging aspects to this projects for example managing the children's behaviour and creating activities that suit all abilities so that no one is excluded. However, both the rehearsals last Wednesday and the concert today went very well. As this was a three month project, the success of the concert was a big relief to myself, my employer and a visiting cellist Greg Sinclair. I hope to do more projects of this nature in the future, not just in Glenrothes but in other special schools in different regions of Scotland.
