Samuel Rhodes School joined the MiSST programme in 2017.
SRS is MiSST’s first special school and a cohort of 10 Year 7’s currently have weekly cello lessons. All are very excited by the programme and resources are being developed for use in other MiSST schools to use with children and young people who have particular learning needs.
We have developed the programme to incorporate Figurenotes into our resources. Figurenotes was created in 1994 at the Resonaari music school in Helsinki by music educators Kaarlo Uusitalo and Markku Kaikkonen. It consists of symbols on a page, which children match to stickers on their instruments.
