Creating Music At Home

Creative music making with BCMG
With the advent of the current crisis, there has been a flurry of music going on-line, and now Birmingham Contemporary Music Group (BCMG) is encouraging families to participate. BCMG has launched Creating Music at Home, two growing sets of fun digital resources to encourage children to create music in their homes. BCMG has also launched its on-line resources to enable children to complete their arts awards remotely.

There is one set Creating Music at Home resources for children who don’t have a musical instrument and another set for those who do. The activities are inspired by or linked to an existing piece of music by a well-known or living composer, with such themes as superheroes, sounds in the house and garden, code and graphic scores. Starting this week, activities are released on a weekly basis with those for children with instruments of Thursdays and for those without instruments on Tuesdays, and children are encouraged to share their resulting creations with the BCMG family. The resources are Free and open to anyone.

Arts Award is a national qualification that supports children and young people to develop as artists and arts leaders. It is designed to inspire children and young people aged up to 25 to enjoy the arts, offering the chance to develop creativity, communication and leadership skills. BCMG has launched its Arts Awards Discover (KS1) and Arts Award Explore (KS2) on-line resources to enable children to complete their arts awards remotely, either by themselves or with the support of people in their home.
