[VIDEO] Reflective practice – powerful, cost-effective, inclusive CPD for music tutors

In this video, three music tutors from Hertfordshire Music Service discuss how reflective practice helps them improve the inclusive quality of their teaching practice.

They explain what it is, how and why it benefits young people, music tutors and organisations, and how a music service can introduce it.

Music tutors Victoria, Ije and Ross have diverse teaching backgrounds; from teaching guitar, drums and voice in schools, to working in youth clubs and PRUs. They are part of an action research project through Changing Tracks, the national inclusion support programme for music services, and also performing/recording musicians.

This video was first screened as part of the Music Mark Conference in November 2020. It was created as part of the Changing Tracks programme.

Changing Tracks is a programme of peer support and learning for and with music services wanting to improve equality, diversity and inclusion. It is run by Hertfordshire Music Service and funded by Youth Music as part of the Alliance for a Musically Inclusive England. It was previously called MusicNet East. We help music services to be more inclusive by providing a peer network facilitated by Music Mark, funding for action research, support and challenge, advice and resources.
