Arts and minds campaign

1st July 2005 at 01:00
The "arts and minds" project, covering nursery and primary pupils in the St Mungo's Learning Community in Glasgow, features three core strands:

* Specialist music input for nurseries and P1-P4 based on the ideas of Kod ly and Dalcroze (the Swiss composer renowned for his music training based on rhythmics, improvisation and sol-fa syllables), following the pilot research results from Queen Mary Street nursery.

* A dedicated "listening well" programme at Glasgow Listening Centre, based at Sacred Heart primary, for children with learning, emotional and behavioural difficulties, where problems with hearing may be at the root of their troubles.

* The "room 13" project for P5-P7 pupils will feature musicians in residence, supported by placement teams from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, to generate initiatives in creative education.
