Lincolnshire Music Service Champions BBC Music Ten Pieces initiative

The aim of this exciting new initiative is to provide a stimulus for music and arts education in primary schools throughout the country, linked together by the Ten Pieces theme.

Starting with special screenings to schools in cinemas across the county in October 2104 and ending with a major celebratory event in Summer 2015 – Ten pieces will open up the world of classical music to children and encourage them to develop their own creative responses to the pieces through music, dance or digital art.

BBC learning will be providing educational resources on the Ten Pieces website to enable teachers

with little knowledge about classical music to run some engaging lessons. These will include online clips of the Ten Pieces film; recordings of the repertoire; arrangements of the pieces to suit different abilities; and information about the composers. In addition, BBC Orchestras will be running some exiting ‘Takeover Days’ in schools.

As a champion, Lincolnshire Music Service (LMS) will be building on the children’s interest and excitement stimulated by the Ten Pieces theme, helping them find out more about classical music and further develop their creative responses.

LMS intends to work with the Ten Pieces by: using the repertoire as a stimulus for whole class ensemble teaching and singing lessons; encouraging secondary school orchestras to perform Ten Pieces concerts for primary schools and introducing children to orchestral instruments; running training for teachers on how to develop creative and compositional work; holding amateur orchestra concerts featuring the Ten Pieces; screening the Ten Pieces at LMS Music Centres across the county and linking with Lincolnshire Music and Arts Education Hub partners encouraging them to work with schools as part of the project.

EMPower, a new project from soundLINCS for young music producers will hold its first session during the half term holidays on the 27 May.

EMPower is a free learning and development project for 11-16 year olds which gives young people the opportunity to collaborate with their peers and work alongside professional music producers to develop new skills and techniques.

Music producer Eddy Mentzel, otherwise known as AudioJunkie, said of the project; “music producers often work in isolation, which limits the possibility of working collaboratively.

EMPower is a great opportunity for young producers to meet one other, work together, and raise the profile of their creative work.”

The initial session will be an opportunity to meet and collaborate with other young music producers, and obtain advice and guidance from an industry expert. It will also give the chance to explore and shape how this project continues, so participants should take a moment to consider their future availability and ideal times to meet in preparation.

The session will take place at the soundHOUSE, 18 St Martins Lane, Lincoln, LN2 1HY between 10 AM and 4 PM. There are drop in spaces for those who have not already signed up to the project or any interested parties can contact soundLINCS on 01522 510073, [email protected] or www.soundlincs.org to sign up for the project or find out more.

The programme is free to take part in and participants are asked to bring their own lunch as refreshments cannot be provided.

EMPower is supported by funding from Youth Music and Lincolnshire Music and Arts Education Hub.

75 children from 8 primary schools in the Boston area performed in the 10th annual Woodwind and Brass Festival at Haven High Academy in May. They had all been rehearsing the music in their instrumental lessons since January and came together on the day for an afternoon rehearsal and evening concert. For many of the musicians this was their first ever public performance. The programme included a wide variety of music with many items composed or arranged especially for this event by Lincolnshire Music Service teachers.

“A superb evening showcasing the amazing musical talent of the primary school children of Boston! All made possible through the encouragement and patience of our wonderful Music Service Team” Emma Schofield, teacher, Boston West Academy.

As part of its 15th birthday celebration, B15, soundLINCS, a major East Midlands music development charity, staged a spectacular music event on Saturday 3rd May at the Epic Centre, Lincolnshire Showground which saw over 300 musicians and singers perform to a worldwide audience.

Following a day of rehearsals, the players aged between 7 and 85 performed a new composition based on the traditional Lincolnshire Folk tune ‘Lost Lady Found’. The performance featured 15 different musical genres, including Orchestra, Folk, Rock, Jazz, Choral, Music Technology, and Brass Band and saw a huge variety of instruments including guitars, clarinets, accordians, a gamelan, a harp, voices, iPads and unique, hand-made instruments.

Nikki-Kate Heyes MBE, soundLINCS CEO commented “Our B15 event has been an incredible experience for everyone involved and we’re delighted that so many people could share the day with us to celebrate an amazing 15 years of making community music across the East Midlands.”

Recordings and photos of the event will soon be available on soundLINCS new website, at www.soundlincs.org
