  • Young DaDa Ensemble @ the Philharmonic Hall

    Young DaDa Ensemble is a 2-year out-of-school accessible music project for young disabled musicians in Liverpool

    It is funded by Youth Music and delivered in partnership by DaDaFest, Drake Music, Resonate, Liverpool’s Music Hub and Live Music Now.

     


    The “Evolve” group from the Young DaDa Ensemble supported international stars Amadou and Mariam at the prestigious Liverpool Philharmonic Hall as part of DaDaFest in December.

     

    This was an exceptionally impressive undertaking given that the group performed live for the first time just a few months ago.

     

    Young DaDa Ensemble took to the stage in shining gold robes and performed an original piece that took the audience on a musical journey around the world.

     

    Associate Musician Jon Hering, who joined the group on stage, said “The young musicians rose to the occasion and gave a barnstorming performance that had the audience dancing along.”

     

    Disability Arts Online reviewed the performance in glowing terms:
    “The exuberance of youth oozed from the golden-clad ensemble from first to last. Rolling, pounding rhythms of a drumming duet set the early tone, followed by a bold beatboxing solo as a prelude to the ensemble getting into full swing.”
    Read the full review.

     

    Young DaDa Ensemble provides accessible music-based activities to young disabled people aged 11 – 20 from across Merseyside.

     

    Two groups – ‘Explore’ and ‘Evolve’ work with experienced music facilitators to develop musical skills and create original songs that culminate in live performances.

He highlighted how Oftsed are looking for good assessment practices, and how sometimes these can be at odds with the demands of SLTs.

    Resonate presentsMusical Futures: FREE Composing and Improvising CPD session for Liverpool schools.

     

    Book your place through Eventbrite here

     

    Musical Futures is an approach to teaching and learning based on the real-world practices of popular and community musicians, making it relevant and engaging for young people. We provide training, resources and an international community of practice for teachers to help them provide accessible music-making in their schools.

     

    Musical Futures approach to Composing and Improvising gives students the skills needed to tackle the demands of GCSE composing, and is delivered in practical ways that are musical as well as theoretical. Take an existing piece of music, break it down, transform it, improvise on its various elements and collaboratibely create and compose new works. The approach is about unpicking and understanding music from the inside out.

     

     

    The session will be delivered by Martin Ainscough, music teacher and Head of Applied Learning at Fred Longworth School, Wigan.

  • Funding for Schools to Purchase Musical Equipment (UK)

    Schools in the UK, that wish to purchase musical instruments and equipment can apply for funding of up to £2,000 through the EMI Music Sound Foundation's Instrument and/or Equipment Awards. To date the Foundations has made awards to over two thousand schools, individual students and teachers improve their access to music through the purchase or upgrade of musical instruments and equipment. The funding has to be made for music education that is beyond statutory national curriculum music teaching. The Foundation cannot fund retrospectively and schools are not eligible for financial assistance under this scheme if they have already purchased their instruments or if they do so before their application has been approved.
     
    The closing date for applications is the 30th August 2016. Read more at:

  • Modulo National Orchestra for All

    http://www.nofa.org.uk/ a UK based charity working to increase ensemble music-making for young people aged 11-18 facing challenging circumstances.

     

    The National Orchestra for All gives a platform to young people who would not normally get the opportunity to participate in music-making together and supports the development of life skills, helping narrow the gap in attainment and life chances.

     

    Working with NOFA Resonate has established a Modulo sectional as part of the Let's Play Band, a group of 10 secondary school age pupils, mixed instruments around Grade 1-3.

     

    The Modulo project is designed to support secondary schools who may not have regular bands, ensembles, orchestras but might have a number of pupils who would be interested in taking part in regional events. Any instrument, any standard. Students do not need to be strong readers of music.

     

    Quote from their site...

     

    The NOFA Modulo Programme aims to help music teachers lead a rewarding instrument ensemble for students of any instrument skill level who are keen to take part in music. We provide teachers with:

     

    •  Specially-arranged Modulo Music that flexibly caters to all ability levels
    •  Rehearsal plans and resources
    •  Two opportunities per year to come together with other schools involved in the programme to perform as a large-scale orchestra, once regionally and once nationally

     

    Resonate would be keen to support any secondary schools wishing to access this programme. Your commitment is to run a weekly rehearsal for between 3 and 10 players of the provided materials and then bring students along to the regional or national events (Manchester Bridgwater and London tbc).

     

    The entire programme for this year is free and I know there is funding available to support schools with transport costs.

  • Silent Night Concert

    A MOVING and unique carol concert took place at St George’s Hall which reflects on wartime at Christmas. Pupils from Resonate Youth Singers and Resonate Brass performed alongside a host of community choirs from across Liverpool. Then, as a very special finale to the Silent Night Carol Concert, The Farm performed a spine-tingling acoustic rendition of All Together Now. 

     

    As a tribute to the Poppies: Weeping Window installation on the exterior of the Hall and The Truce statue, which is currently on display inside the venue and depicts the famous Christmas Truce of 1914, more than 10 groups of performers took to the stage in the Concert Room to give live performances of carols and songs including some from the wartime era.

     

    Resonate were proud to work with the following community choirs; Night & Days, Resonate Singers, Liverpool Male Voice Choir, The Royal Court Theatre Choir, Resonate Brass, S.O.N.G Merseyside, SoSo (Singing Our Socks Off), Vox in the Light, The Poppies, Pagoda Chinese Youth Orchestra.

     

    Prior to the event Assistant Mayor and Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure and Events, Councillor Wendy Simon, said: “The Silent Night Carol Concert is set to be an emotional and uplifting evening, and in the surroundings of the stunning Concert Room, it’s without a doubt an unmissable event.

     

    “The public reaction so far to the Poppies installation has been overwhelming, and it’s not a surprise that these beautiful ceramic flowers, and everything they symbolise, have inspired this evening of live music. I’m delighted so many performers are going to be involved and just thinking about the finale with local legends The Farm singing their iconic song is enough to give anyone goosebumps.

     

    Space is of course limited, so I hope as many people as possible make the most of this unique event and be part of what will be an unforgettable, Christmassy evening.”
