ISM/ABO Seminar: 'Good Safeguarding Practice in Music Education'

Monday 5 October, Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London EC2Y 8DT

Following the highly successful Safeguarding Conference held at Chetham’s School of Music last year, the ISM has partnered with the ABO on presenting this one-day seminar. This event will bring together representatives from music education alongside those within the sport and dance sectors to discuss good safeguarding practice in music education. Debate and discussion of the use of physical contact in music education will be central to the day and we will explore the following key questions:

  • Is the use of touch in music education necessary or conducive to learning?
  • If so, what kinds of touch are appropriate? How does practice vary across different types of music education e.g. for different instrument groups?
  • What can we learn from safeguarding practice in other fields such as sport or dance?
  • What might constitute best practice in relation to touch in music education?
