Our qualified and experienced team can offer a wide variety of activities to address your music curriculum needs, which often provide cross curriculum opportunities. We can provide short taster sessions through to year-long residencies in a variety of genres. We are able to meet the needs of all age ranges from family learning and foundation stage to Key Stage 4 and provision can take place at a time and setting most convenient to you.
SoundWave has an excellent reputation for providing Continual Professional Development opportunities to school staff and we try wherever possible to ensure these are embedded within our programmes. All of our employees have enhanced CRB certification and have received the relevant Safeguarding training. We consistently strive towards excellence and quality standards in line with OFSTED requirements.
