Music for Education & Wellbeing podcast

In this new podcast, Anita Holford, co-editor of Music Education Works, is talking with Elle Williams, a classically-trained guitarist who previously worked as a music tutor in mainstream schools, and now specialises solely in one-to-one music lessons with disabled people and those with additional needs.

We talk about:

  • the lack of music tutors working one-to-one with disabled people, particularly young people with moderate or profound and multiple disabilities
  • the tendency for provision in special needs schools to be music therapy or group music-making
  • and where tutors can find information and guidance to broaden their skills to reach more young people.
  • Elle also shares three helpful tips for fellow music tutors

You can access the podcast via a blog on our main website –
