MPN 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.
