Explore a very unusual website!

Welcome! I'm Audrey Podmore, music teacher, composer and facilitator. I launched this site, in September 2002 to support all kinds of creative and inclusive music-making. At that time online music publishing was in it's infancy and, as a pioneer, I happily 'ploughed my own furrow'! These days, though, the scene has changed beyond recognition and I constantly need to find new ways to relate with visitors and make resources available. It's a very daunting task for one person, with so much material to share! You can read a little about what's here, below, or explore the Sitemap. Please do contact me with any comments, ideas or questions you may have.

I look forward to sharing with you, soon!

 

 

Creativity


Here, you will find many resources to support creativity:

  • improvisation ideas for many of our sheet-music pieces
     
  • interactive  software, packed with creative ideas
     
  • creative classroom projects for key stages 1-3
     
  • Kids' Pages of creative activities and Kids' Guide to site
     
  • inspirational articles by creative musicians
     
  • links to other places online which support a creative approach


 

Inclusion

The site supports inclusion by:

  • making easy music available, including much for absolute beginners
     
  • publishing flexible music for mixed instruments and abilities
     
  • providing online playback for large sections of our catalogue
     
  • publishing 'framework' software with "widening access" options
     
  • offering a customisation service for our sheet music and software
     
  • articles supporting inclusive practice
     
  • links supporting music and special needs


 

Publishing

The Full Pitcher publishes materials that meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • they promote creative music-making
     
  • they are flexible enough to permit some degree of customisation
     
  • they reach out to those deprived of music, for whatever reason


We also distribute creative and inclusive music resources from other publishers and welcome enquiries from like-minded teachers and community musicians.
