What is a musical education for?
- Date: Tuesday 14 June 2022, 17:30 – 18:45
- Location: Clothworkers Centenary Concert Hall, Music
- Cost: Free
The second of the new Music Exchange (TMX) series focuses on the challenges that music education faces and how it can be reimagined.
Music education today faces challenges - not just from underfunding, but from those who are asking how it might be more creative and inclusive, from school level through to university. How might we reimagine music education as a more equal, liberated and decolonised space than it has been in the past?
These and related themes will be explored during a panel discussion with Leeds-based musicians and educators, including singer, composer and MD, Christella Litras (Geraldine Connor Foundation), sitarist and composer, Jasdeep Singh Degun (South Asian Arts-uk), and DJ Nicole Raymond (NikNak).
The discussion will be chaired and introduced by Dr Matthew Pritchard, lecturer in the School of Music, and followed by a social/networking event in the Foyer.
Please note that this event will run simultaneously in-person, at the Clothworkers’ Centenary Concert Hall Foyer, and online, via interactive webinar. Clothworkers Bar will be serving refreshments from 5pm until close.
