About Conductive Music

Founded in 2012, Conductive Music works with 18 MEHs across the country and is set to reach 9,000 students and 500 teachers in 150 schools annually in England only in 2021. Each year, we undertake 3 months of R&D to remain at the leading edge of technology innovation for music education: we research new educational software and hardware, upgrade all our projects and test them through international tours before delivering them across England.

We have many partners across Europe and in Thailand, Hong Kong and Japan, from community centres to universities and international schools. Even during lockdown, we were invited to deliver virtual keynotes and workshops in Bangkok, across Japan, Hong Kong and Genova. We regularly publish papers and peer-reviewed articles to contribute to knowledge sharing.

We also organised online performances with artists from Wales, Hong Kong and Malaysia for students in English rural regions, to introduce them to new cultures and instruments.

 

Our Mission

From our home base in South East London, we operate across the country from Cornwall to Gateshead. We focus on schools with low music provision and help MEHs initiate or strengthen links with them. Digital delivery is now enabling us to reach even more underserved students.

We focus on children from challenging backgrounds (SEN, EAL, PP, FSM, PRU) and a growing network of Special Schools. Our offer of Live Lessons, Online Lessons and CPD allows for teachers to use our material, train themselves and become ambassadors of our STEAM approach. We partner with MEHs and Local Authorities to target schools in cold spots, then collaborate with Heads and teachers to engage with children who need it most.

Our STEAM approach develops key employability skills for the Creative and Cultural Industries. By mixing Music and Sciences we grasp the interest of most children, raising awareness of creative career paths. We collaborate with Universities to engage PhD students through research residencies to develop both our provision and their practical experience. Our learning materials are freely available through social media. We share findings of our projects publicly, including through lectures for Undergraduates in Departments of Education/Psychology.

International schools, such as the Canadian International School of Hong Kong, commission us to produce new projects, which we can then deliver at very low cost to charities such as Amigos de Gillian Banks (Tenerife) who operate in youth centres. British Council France also regularly books us to teach English-language-based cross-disciplinary science courses in French schools.

The National Campaign for the Arts are on the look-out for new trustees to join our board and support our campaign for public arts funding in the UK. 

We are a small, proactive board. Currently, all of our activity and campaigning is managed by us, with assistance from a part-time administrator. You will play a busy, hands-on role in our work and the success of our campaigns.

We campaign for more public funding and investment in the arts because life is better when it is surrounded by arts and culture. We are not complaining nay-sayers, we are positively For The Arts. We believe that the arts benefit everyone, that they are socially and economically valuable and that they require long term investment to survive and grow. We want to empower the public to champion the arts, to build such a loud collective voice that the logical case for sustainable public investment cannot be ignored.

We want people who can bring one or more of the following:

  • specialist skills and experience that enhance our team. We are particularly looking for people with expertise in any of the following areas: event production; digital communications; education and training; human resources; press and public relations.
  • Professional connections that will open doors and make action easier
  • In-kind support or funding that we can invest to expand our reach
  • Recognisable status as an arts practitioner that will bring fresh perspective
  • We are keen that our board is representative of the society that we speak to and on behalf of. We welcome and encourage applications from all backgrounds, especially young people and those who are traditionally less well represented.

What we expect of our trustees:

  • To attend board meetings – every other month, usually in central London, in person or via video link. You will be expected to read and contribute to board papers and minutes ahead of each meeting. The meetings are participatory: we want you to bring perspective and experience to our collective decisions.
  • To be active between meetings – we are a ‘doing’ board. Each trustee is expected take on tasks and activities at meetings, and to actively pursue them in collaboration with the rest of the board.
  • To provide content – we expect all board members to contribute to newsletters, write pieces for our website, and enhance our social media feeds.
  • To bring individual skills – beyond the above, each trustee’s further contribution is likely to depend on their experiences, skills and areas of interest. We expect all trustees to be an asset to the collective: enthusiastic, open and collaborative in a way that will achieve results
