Global Music Visions C.I.C. Inclusive Music Project At Toynbee School 22nd March – 28th June 2019

We have been working with the students at Toynbee School delivering music sessions along with Jim Chorley, as part of our Inclusive Music Project, supported by Music Fusion, and funded by Hampshire Music Education Hub. The group wrote lyrics, composed and recorded their own tracks over the duration of the project, and we are looking forward to working with the school again in the future.

Included is a picture of some of the group sitting on the bench outside in the school gardens smiling. At either side of the bench one of the members is holding an acoustic guitar upright by their side, whilst another is holding an electric guitar across their lap. Two other students are sitting between them; one of them is holding a tambourine. David and Jim are standing behind the bench next to the green bushes.

Global Music Visions C.I.C. and Portsmouth College Music Workshop Collaboration 2nd May 2019

The GMV Music group had a great session with year 2 Music Technology students from Portsmouth College. They organised and facilitated an inclusive music workshop, as part of their course, at the Charles Dickens Centre, Lake Road Portsmouth. All members of the GMV group contributed to the recording session in some way, creating/using original material. They all had fun today.

Included is a picture of the group standing in a semi-circle posing for a funny photo, doing different actions and smiling for the camera after the session.
