Musical Futures is delighted to be partnering with the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts who will sponsor the Music Learning Revolution on the 23rd October 2015. As part of this one-day festival of innovation in music education, which aims to attract primary and secondary teachers and practitioners from across the UK and beyond, the Digital R&D Fund will showcase three of its innovative projects from NYMAZ, Sonic Pi, and Heart and Soul through workshops and presentations for classroom teachers.

The Digital R&D fund for the Arts is a £7million fund to support collaboration between organisations with arts projects, technology providers and researchers. It is a partnership between Arts Council England, Arts and Humanities Research Council and Nesta.

Have learnt so much today, will revolutionise my teaching. Super, uplifting, motivational, inspirational.

Brilliant ideas to take forward into my own teaching… a fantastic day – left with lots of new ideas and strategies…
