Welcome to our first week and our first musical style is folk music. To access our resources, please could go the Local Heroes section on our website:

 https://www.musicpartnershipnorthnewcastle.co.uk/website/local_heroes_1/476050

We will suggest a piece for young people to focus on for each style, but that doesn’t mean anyone wanting to get involved can't play or sing another piece, or research into other pieces or composers relating to each week's musical genre.  We will be uploading lots of different resources to help everyone get inspired, and over the next few weeks we will be exploring folk music, rock and pop, classical music, musical theatre, music from around the world, and much, much more.  

 Basically we want everyone to get creative! Responses could be compositions, performances, songs or dances. Equally, they could be a piece of art, some creative writing or a research piece. Check out our Local Heroes Activity Menu for some ideas for each key stage.

Music Partnership North Newcastle Local Heroes Project

 

MPN Newcastle is proud to launch the Local Heroes project, designed to support schools and young people with their online musical learning over the coming weeks. Each week, MPN Newcastle will set you, our very own local heroes, the challenge of responding to a different musical style in any way you wish. Whether you are learning from home or at school right now, we would love for you, your teachers and your families to get involved. Our tutors will also be producing their own responses to share with you, so look out for some familiar faces! We will suggest some pieces for you to focus on each week, but that doesn’t mean you can’t learn to play or sing another piece, or research into other pieces or composers. We will be uploading lots of resources to help you get inspired.

Over the next few weeks we will be exploring folk music, rock and pop, classical music, musical theatre, music from around the world, and much, much more. We want you to get creative and respond however you would like, so get composing, performing, singing or dancing! You could even create a piece of art, write a story or do some research into one of the pieces of music we have set for each week.
