Introducing... the Music Man Project UK!
There are no two ways about it - this year has changed the world. It has changed the way we care, communicate, travel, educate, buy; how we work, what we wear, who we visit and so much more.
Whilst many things have indeed changed, one remains the same – Naidex’s commitment to support the independent living community.
It wasn’t possible for us to hold a physical event this year and the 46th edition of Naidex has been postponed to 2021. However, whilst there is always plenty to do at Naidex, we feel the event goes beyond a physical marketplace. As Europe’s longest running independent living show, it's our aim to ensure that, year-round, we’re connecting the disability and healthcare community, bringing you the latest innovations and providing you with a place to get together with people who have the same goals and interests as you.
So, as we excitedly await the next edition of Naidex, we're delighted to announce, direct from the Royal Albert Hall and London Palladium Theatre, a performance by the award-winning Music Man Project UK live on the Naidex Facebook, on the 16th of October at 2:00pm!
The Music Man Project is an international music education service for children and adults with learning disabilities, providing accessible music tuition leading to inspirational performances.
Run by volunteers, the charity was founded by Churchill Fellow, David Stanley, and gives grants for accessible arts education, promotes equal access to performance, carries out research and raises awareness of the achievements of disadvantaged people in the arts. The project nurtures innate musicality, delivering education, enjoyment and performances through the teaching of original music at special schools, colleges, care homes, weekly music schools and daily adult classes in the community. It offers the same opportunities enjoyed by aspiring mainstream musicians by providing the best tuition, instruments, musical repertoire and performance platforms available.
