The Project. Multicultural Music Making is a high-quality music in education programme for young people in the West Midlands. Now in its sixth year, the project works in partnership with primary and secondary schools in Birmingham and community settings in Walsall. Each week small groups of Key Stage 2 and 3 musicians work with our team of professional artists to learn and share a range of international repertoire, compose original work, and engage critically with traditional and contemporary sounds. The choice of material is primarily based on the identities and interests of the young people, as we seek to connect to our parents’ and grandparents’ cultural and musical heritages, and better understand the global journeys of people, stories, instruments, and songs. As the young musicians grow in confidence and skill they perform with one another’s schools, for families and neighbours, sharing what they’ve learned and created in their communities. MMM is a partnership between Natalie Mason and Friction Arts.
