Plymouth School of Creative Arts are very excited to be working in partnership with Plymouth Music Zone as part of a music project called ‘Rhythm and Respect’. This project will run fortnightly until July 2019 and connects Year 10 GCSE Music students with older people in the community through a range of creative music-making opportunities. The idea of ‘Rhythm and Respect’ is to link diverse community groups and enable people to change their perceptions of themselves and others. Last week, for example, students were impressed by footage of a Plymouth Music Zone workshop in a care home, in which residents were beatboxing! Students will have the opportunity to help shape and co-design the project and will develop skills not only in music, but also in leadership and teamwork. Keep an eye out on the Plymouth School of Creative Arts Facebook/Plymouth Music Zone Facebook page for updates! Many thanks to Big Lottery for supporting this project.
