Since 2022, Education & Bass has collaborated with numerous special schools throughout the UK, promoting and supporting the integration of Music Technology and DJ Skills into their curriculum. We are steadfast in our conviction that all should have access to music technology. Our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)/Social, Emotional, and Mental Health (SEMH) Kickstarter Days provide an initial framework, enabling schools and other education Providers to introduce a music technology to their students with minimal expenditure and resources.
During these Kickstarter Days, the Education & Bass team visits a school for an entire day, engaging with one or more groups of students who may have varying degrees of physical, learning challenges, or disabilities. There’s no need for high-end equipment or specialised music rooms for these sessions. We bring the necessary gear and frequently utilise readily available tools in the schools, like Chromebooks and tablets. Free software ensures that the momentum of teaching and learning continues even after our visit.
Our commitment goes beyond the initial visit. We also offer Continuous Professional Development (CPD) sessions and supplementary resources to empower educators and support staff, ensuring that students can pursue their passion for music consistently.
Post these Kickstarter Days, Education & Bass has developed partnerships with several schools. Some have invited us back for recurring weekly sessions throughout the academic year, serving as their dedicated Music Technology provision. Meanwhile, others have built upon the foundation we’ve provided, managing independently, yet always with our unwavering support ready when needed.
