SUPPORT OUR WORK
We now provide music-based mentoring in Cambridgeshire - an extension of our instrumental tuition that specifically targets vulnerable pupils.
A music tutor is often the only regular one-to-one contact a young person has with an adult in school, and so is well placed to pick up difficulties a student may be having. Music-based mentoring is child-centered; it focuses on working with individual children to develop their attitude to learning. Goals are set for personal and social outcomes as well as musical skills.
Tutors and students work together to set realistic musical and personal goals, which will show improvement over time, giving a tangible sense of achievement and helping to improve attitude to learning overall.
Tailored to the needs of vulnerable students in Key Stages 2-5, music-based mentoring challenges limiting beliefs, by providing a safe environment to take musical risks, freeing learners from fear of failure and improving confidence, self-esteem and resilience.
It can be booked by the school or by families after discussion with the school. Music-based mentoring is delivered in partnership with MusicNet East.
