Training the Community Musician

Sound Sense, in partnership with The University of Aberdeen and Edinburgh Youth Music Forum, is pleased to announce the first in a series of symposiums, bringing together practitioners who facilitate community music in formal, informal or non-formal settings.

The symposium will take place at The University of Aberdeen on 18th & 19th February 2019 and focus on sharing practices and approaches in the training of community musicians, whilst developing an understanding of issues facing those teaching this emerging field. Find out more here.
