The Musical Works…

…Are looking for people who would like to work in musical education, and preferably have some experience of working in schools, or with children. They are especially keen to find people who can teach steel pans, samba, bhangra dancing, DJ-ing & MC-ing and hip hop/rap, although they would like to hear from anyone who would like to be involved.

“We feel that it is important to involve local musicians and artists from the Burngreave area,” said Emma Pratt, Musical Works organiser.

Musical Works is closely linked to The JuJu Club, an organisation that has been promoting live ‘global’ music gigs for about 14 years in Sheffield, and funded by the Sheffield Music Service.

  • Musical Works specialises in:
  • Music and dance from non-Western cultures (African, South Asian, African-Caribbean, Latin American, Aboriginal etc.)
  • Contemporary black music culture and dance (Rap, Hip Hop, R&B, Bhangra, etc)
  • The combination of acoustic music and current digital technology
  • Music technology

And they have direct links with successful enterprises working in the music industry.

For more information about getting involved with Musical Works, call Emma Pratt on on 249 6557 or emma@headcharge.net.

BNDfC will be implementing phase 2 of their ‘Music in Schools’ in the autumn. For more information about this BNDfC project, call Permjeet on 279 6932.
