Specialist schools We offer a broad range of support to the Specialist School Provision in County Durham and Darlington and are proud of our excellent relationships with these schools. We work closely with each setting to ensure that the musical needs of students and staff are met, support includes: curriculum support; sensory based sessions; structured ASC sessions; brass, guitar and percussion small group; whole class ukulele teaching; gifted and talented ukulele clubs and rock band. We also work with schools to provide large scale ensemble experiences, bringing children from different schools to sign and sing together at Sage Gateshead. We have an annual Music Showcase Day to bring young musicians from across the county to play music and enjoy each others performances. In the coming school year we are planning to bring the young musicians who are having small group lessons together to experience ensemble playing. Please contact us and request to speak with our Special School's lead practitioner Jo James for more details.
