SAT SAT Music Education Special SAT SAT This week Music Matters comes from MusicLearningLive!2009 SAT - the UK's national festival of music education at the SAT Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. SAT SAT With questions from an audience of festival delegates, Tom SAT Service chairs an important debate about the present and SAT future of music education, from primary school to SAT conservatoire. SAT SAT Joining Tom in the RNCM's Opera Theatre is a panel of SAT policy makers and thinkers - Christina Coker, Chief SAT Executive of Youth Music, Dick Hallam, National Music SAT Participation Director, cellist and educationalist Zoe SAT Martlew, Richard Morrison, journalist and critic of The SAT Times, and Katherine Zeserson, Director of Learning and SAT Participation at The Sage Gateshead. SAT SAT Sing Up SAT SAT In November 2007, the government announced a £332 million SAT investment in music in schools to 2011 - including £40m SAT to buy new instruments and £40m for the national Sing Up SAT programme, which aims to make every primary school in SAT England a 'singing school'. SAT SAT With recent critical reports from government regulator SAT Ofsted and the independent Cambridge Primary Review, the SAT panel discusses the current state of play in primary SAT schools. SAT SAT And with it being possible to pass GCSE music without SAT having to read western classical notation, the panel SAT discusses this and other issues in secondary school music SAT education - especially considering the government's SAT £332m stretches only as far as 11 year olds. SAT SAT In Harmony SAT SAT The debate also covers education outside the classroom - SAT In Harmony is England-s answer to Venezuela-s highly SAT successful El Sistema programme. Can this community SAT development project, spearheaded by cellist Julian Lloyd SAT Webber and aimed at bringing positive social change to SAT some of the most deprived areas of the country, prove its SAT worth in just two years? SAT SAT And what are the prospects for those that want to pursue a SAT career in music? With specialist music college students SAT regarding teaching as a second class option is there a SAT need for a change in attitude about following a career in SAT education?

Living during the time of Martin Luther's SUN Reformation; the establishment of the printing-press SUN in the disemination of art and ideas; and the advent of SUN new humanist thought, Dürer proved to be a true SUN Renaissance Man - as steeped in the intellectual SUN thinking of his day as he was the myriad of means of SUN artistic expression. He lived the best part of his life in SUN Nuremberg and played a significant role in establishing SUN the medieval city as the centre of Europe in the 16th SUN century - a city as important culturally as it was SUN politically. Catherine Bott travels to Nuremberg, SUN looks back on the significance of Nuremberg's SUN contribution to culture, and visits the Dürerhaus which SUN is now a Dürer museum. She meets the Director Jutta SUN Tschoeke and considers the Dürer zeitgeist through SUN his art and the music of his day. She also considers SUN the Dürer legacy and how it is mirrored in aspects SUN of German music in later years.

SUN SUN 21:30 Sunday Feature b00ct1y1 (Listen) SUN Wee Have Also Sound-Houses SUN To mark the 50th anniversary in 2008 of the creation of SUN the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, the programme examines the SUN life and legacy of one of the great pioneers of British SUN electronic music - the Workshop's co-founder Daphne Oram. SUN SUN As a child in the 1930s, Oram dreamed of a way to turn SUN drawn shapes into sound, and she dedicated her life to SUN realising that goal. Her Oramics machine anticipated the SUN synthesiser by more than a decade, and with it she SUN produced a number of internationally-performed works for SUN the cinema, concert hall and theatre. SUN SUN Daphne Oram was among the very first composers of SUN electronic music in Britain and her legacy is the SUN dominance of that soundworld in our culture today. SUN SUN 22:15 Words and Music b00j4j1l (Listen) SUN Insects SUN SUN Poetry, prose and music devoted to the world of insects, SUN and the beauty and variation to be found within, with SUN readings by Ewan Bailey and Rachel Atkings. Including Thom SUN Gunn's poem Considering the Snail, DH Lawrence's The SUN Mosquito and Robert Burns' To A Louse, as well as music by SUN Josquin, Roussel, Bartok and Martin Carthy. SUN SUN Producer's Note SUN SUN Insects are a gift to composers, not only because they SUN evoke such strong emotions in humans, but because they are SUN often musicians themselves. Josquin's El grillo e buon SUN cantore mimics the sound of a cricket singing in the SUN summer, while Schubert's Der Einsame (The Lonely) SUN concerns the melancholy of a cricket, sitting on a hearth, SUN mourning the disappearance of the summer. SUN SUN The image of butterflies floating across the air is SUN captured by Schumann's Les Papillons, and The Flight of SUN the Bumblebee follows the erratic path of a charging SUN pollen gatherer. However, insects can also cause us SUN intense discomfort, reflected in Simpson's String SUN Quartet No 8, which is about the movements of a mosquito SUN and was written for an entomologist, and From The Diary of SUN a Fly by Bela Bartok. DH Lawrence's poem Mosquito and SUN Robert Burn's To A Louse demonstrate just how irritating SUN yet compelling pests can be! SUN SUN And despite little attention being directed towards the SUN invertebrate world, we depend on the honeybee for one of SUN the most delicious foods. She appears at the end of the SUN programme, with Virgil's ancient appreciation of the SUN sophistication and mystery of these tiny animals.
