Music-based Mentoring

TEXT to be edited down.

Find out how learning music can help support vulnerable young people in schools and educations support centres.
The peripatetic tutor is often the only regular one-to-one contact a young person has with an adult in school, and so is well placed to pick up difficulties a student may be having and to work with the school to support that child.
Working with vulnerable students in schools and Education Support Centres, trained peripatetic teachers are able to act as mentors providing musical learning activities and experiences that respond to the pupils’ own musical interests, develop their broad attitudes to learning and offer a safe way to talk about feelings, issues, challenges and choices.
