Castleview School is a school for children with complex learning difficulties of nursery and primary ages. Every student at Castleview School has had a weekly Big Noise session since the programme began in 2008. We work closely with the school to ensure that the content of our delivery corresponds with their curriculum, enables as much inclusion as possible and provides a positive experience for every child.
The principles of Figurenotes music notation have allowed students from Castleview School to play string instruments in after-school ensembles alongside young people reading conventionally notated parts. We have a strong relationship with Drake Music Scotland, who provide regular music technology training and advise us on resources. Iain and Veronica use SoundBeam, Skoogmusic and various Musical Instrument apps for iPad alongside acoustic instruments, movement and voice in their groupwork and individual lessons at Castleview.
