Talking Music Education (#talkingmusiced) is a new series of videos from UCan Play. In Talking Music Education, Jonathan Savage, Managing Director of UCan Play, interviews leading figures in music education, discussing a range of topics of current interest. Each interviewee is also asked about the music they enjoy and to recommend a piece of literature that has helped them develop their own understanding about music education.
This month’s episode is an interview with Mike Challis, a sound artist, maker and educator. Mike and Jonathan, MD of UCan Play, both taught together at Debenham High School in Suffolk during the 1990s. In this interview, they reflect on the various music education projects that they worked on together, including Dunwich Revisited and Reflecting Others, before moving onto more recent educational partnerships in music education.
